Ok would change this in next version.

What I was thinking is that compatible string is used to match what
driver should be used, and mtk,rpmsg-name is used to match the node to
the rpmsg device SCP announced. It's possible (although not in the
device tree we use) that multiple subnodes of SCP node use the same
driver, and they would have different mtk,rpmsg-name and corresponds
to different rpmsg device from SCP.

This is a example of subnode that can be under the cros_ec binding,
and is not directly related to this particular binding document. I
just wanted to show that there's possible subnode for the cros_ec
node, sorry for the confusion.
