This exactly. We should have a DT compat in the form:
compatible = "vendor,<soc>-block", "vendor,<oldest-compat-soc>-block";
Then if we find a problem in the future, we can match on the
"vendor,<soc>-block" and still support the old DTs.

The question is, does the "vendor,<soc>-block" go into the binding
document as well or do we only have "vendor,<oldest-compat-soc>-block"
there ?
