Maybe, and I agree that's the "correct" way, but looking at the history,
it's not just once or twice when we've suddenly found out some
difference or bug or such in an IP revision, or the integration to a
SoC, that can't be found based on the IP revision.

That's why I feel it's usually safer to have the SoC revision there in
the compatible string.

That said, we have only a few different old SoCs with LCDC (compared to,
say, OMAP DSS) so in this case perhaps just "ti,lcdc" would be fine.
