Just in case it helps you on any future adventures in the Amlogic
vendor code: I think this is not quite right. I believe that MX
specifically refers to Meson6 and no other SoC generation.

That said, if both MesonX (==Meson6) and Meson8/Meson8b all share the
same driver code, having this driver named "mx" makes sense to me,
especially because it helps distinguish from the GX* chips which
indeed have something rather different.
