Ok. Let's forget about it at the moment then, especially if it's
optional, we can add support for it later.

Not really. The eMMC and MMC controllers are *very* different. They
behave (slightly) differently, the eMMC controller has more signals
(8-bit bus, data strobe), can run at a higher frequency. You cannot
have exactly the same driver (or rather code path) to handle
both. Therefore the need for some other compatible.
This is not the case for the mixer here. The thing that differs
between instances is not behaviour but data. And we provide most of
the data through DT.
