Stephen specifically didn't like the chip ones due to churn. We'd
have to add compat tags every time we got a new chip.... which is kind
of frequent. So I opted for defining one compat for older A family
chips that require only 1 clock. The qcom,scm would cover the newer
And it looks like i left a reference to apq8064. That needs to be
replaced with a-family. Sorry for that confusion.
