I took the spelling for "Shenzhen Wesion Technology CO.,LTD." from
their website: [0]

I asked Gouwa, one of the people behind the Khadas VIM boards for
clarification some time ago:
"Khadas is a new brand power by Shenzhen Wesion Technology, 'Khadas'
is brand, 'VIM' is product serial name, like 'Apple + iPhone'"
I think I used the vendor-prefixes "pine64" and "radxa" as reference
(see [1]) when I wrote the patch - and none of the existing entries
seems to follow the "brand by parent company" schema.

@Gouwa, Rob: could you please share your opinion on what the official
"vendor" name for the "khadas" prefix should be?
