While people don't strictly need the driver change it doesn't do any
harm either and encourages people to get the information into the DT
that it's a different chip.  Thinking about it it might be good to have
a way for something to validate if fallback compatibles are being listed
when they should - the drivers could provide the information fairly
easily I guess, or it could go into the binding docs once we have a
schema format.

Even if it doesn't currently make a difference to software I'd rather
get the information in there for mixed signal devices like audio CODECs
- it's not that unknown to find later that supposedly register identical
chips have some differences in the analog which we want to care about.
