Separate compatibles would mean separate drivers.

Unlike your DUART example this is not an MMIO device that we can easily
split but a SPI slave (well, regmap due to some I2C models).

I don't see how separate drivers could work, given that the whole
spi_device has a single interrupt for all functions of this device.

That left me with this ugly but working construct.

Is the uartX naming correct, or should it be serialX?

Andreas
