I'm talking about future patches.

Yeah, what I wrote is confusing, sorry about that.

What I mean is that new patches should stay consistent with compatibles
in their existing drivers/subsystems.  That means keeping the "meson-"
prefix for everything except drivers/clk.

In addition to that, patches would be welcome for *adding* compatibles
without "meson" to all the current drivers.
