[Jason Jin-R64188] I think we need to align with the document as it's posted at Freescale website, otherwise, the inconsistency will confuse the customer. 
please refer to:
As the development work is ahead of the formal name posted outside, we continued to use the name for upstreaming patches. Sorry for taking into the confusion. For those patches aren't merged, please help to review them based on the new SoC name.

For the merged FEC patch, we'd like to explain it to the maintainer, Or can we just keep the FEC compatible string as before("fsl, mvf600-fec")? And be aware of it's the equivalent of "fsl,vf610-fec"?
