They are all managed the same way, but the page addresses are
changing between all of them... the driver is reading the chip ID
while the TS MCU is in "boot mode", then checking in a ID table
if the chip is supported and finally assigning a page address table.
This is done for the entire NT36*** series.

If wildcards are not permitted, perhaps I can change it to something
like "novatek,nt36" or "novatek,nt36-ts"... as then specifying the
specific IC model into the DT means that I would have to logically
change the driver itself to also crosscheck a DT-specified model
with whatever gets recognized by reading the chip (which then would
be a triple check of what's going on, imo overcomplicating the logic).

What would you propose, at this point?
