It's not quite what I was proposing. I think my summary really sums it up:

1. If you have a matrix keyboard and maybe also some buttons/switches
then use the compatible: google,cros-ec-keyb

2. If you only have buttons/switches but you want to be compatible
with the old driver in Linux that looked for the compatible
"google,cros-ec-keyb" and required the matrix properties, use the
compatible: "google,cros-ec-keyb-switches", "google,cros-ec-keyb"

3. If you have only buttons/switches and don't need compatibility with
old Linux drivers, use the compatible: "google,cros-ec-keyb-switches"

...but just to say it another way:

* If you have the compatible "google,cros-ec-keyb-switches" I mean to
say that you _only_ have switches and buttons. You'd _never_ have this
compatible string if you truly have a matrix keyboard. If you have
this, it will always be first.

* If you only have switches and buttons but you care about backward
compatibility then you can add a fallback compatible second:
"google,cros-ec-keyb"

* In order for the fallback compatible to be at all useful as a
fallback (it's only useful at all if you're on an old driver), if you
specify it you should pretend that you have matrix properties even
though you don't really have them, just like we used to do.
