Ah sorry my bad, I meant the compatible(somehow left this word at the
end of earlier email - it should have been" .. AMBA binding expects the
primecell id in the binding compatible")

- compatible : should be a specific name for the peripheral and
	"arm,primecell". The specific name will match the ARM
	engineering name for the logic block in the form: "arm,pl???"

So I wanted to make sure either we follow that here(unlikely as ARM is
not publishing this as standard primecell yet) or specify that it's
exception here.
