I guess in general this is more a matter of preference.

Past practices suggest that having the dw in the name is a sane solution too, 
like in dw_mmc-foo (mmc/host), dwmac-foo (net/ethernet/stmicro/stmmac).

And personally I'd keep to this already established naming scheme ... i.e. not 
hiding the dw heritage.

And also it looks like other involved parties like Philipp and Russell seemed 
to be ok with the naming through the revisions till now.

Please keep to one rk <-> rockchip style at least per subsystem. The core drm 
driver uses rockchip, so the hdmi driver should too (instead of rk).
