Actually one thing is the real compatibility of devices and second is
the source code.

Looking at the source code, the behaviour for new exynos3250 compatible
and "samsung,exynos5420-dw-mshc" would be the same, right? This would be
a indication for reusing existing compatible. No need to create new one.

However maybe the devices aren't really compatible and using the same
compatible would prevent adding new features to Exynos5420?
