In arm64 they used broadcom so i assume the full name looks correct.

Considering it's really just 3 binding IMHO it should be just dropped
and merged in other dtsi... But lets not extend this too much.
This is really just a simplic link and armv7-m.dtsi is placed in dts/
I create links in each oem that includes it to skip any changes to the
dts.

Thx for the hint hope to get more comments about the dubious
categorization about nxp and freescale.
