Hi Mark,

Just for clarification. If we want to add spi support for a new soc, say
mt8127, which we think is compatible to mt6589. Since it may turn out we
need special handling for this soc latter, it is suggested to write
compatible like this in mt8127.dtsi:

compatible = "mediatek,mt8127-spi",
"mediatek,mt6589-spi";

Device tree binding should list all possible compatible string in .dts,
so we'll have to add that to binding as well.

- mediatek,mt6589-spi: for mt6589 platforms
+ - mediatek,mt8127-spi: for mt8127 platforms

Then we'll also need to add this to source code to reflect this.

{ .compatible = "mediatek,mt6589-spi", .data = (void *)COMPAT_MT6589},
+ { .compatible = "mediatek,mt8127-spi", .data = (void *)COMPAT_MT6589},

This seems to introduce lots of trivial patches just to add a compatible
device to me...
