I know the history here so I know the reasons for the 3 choices, but
I'm not sure I'd fully understand it just from the description above.
Maybe a summary in the CL desc would help?

Summary:

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"

I think that:

1. If you only have buttons/switches and care about backward
compatibility, you use the "two compatibles" version.

2. If you care about backward compatibility then you _must_ include
the matrix properties.

Thus I would be tempted to say that we should just have one "if" test
that says that if matrix properties are allowed then they're also
required.

That goes against the recently landed commit 4352e23a7ff2 ("Input:
cros-ec-keyb - only register keyboard if rows/columns exist") but
perhaps we should just _undo_ that that since it landed pretty
recently and say that the truly supported way to specify that you only
have keyboards/switches is with the compatible.

What do you think?
