Nope, it's specific, just like other scu - Snoop Control Unit. What's
more, reusing the same acronym leads to confusions.

If it was generic, then I expect it to be present in several other
places, but it's not (except the other SCU).

Generic name is for example "system-controller".

Device bindings do not enforce the names, unless it's really needed, and
I doubt there is a need here. Just drop it and rename nodes in DTS to
something generic.

Best regards,
