I prefer 
"faraday,fotg210-usb2"

I've got rejected by Rob due the fact this is an dual role controller, 
which supports both host and device mode. And DT must reflect this desgn 
pattern.

Currently I'm wrappingt my head around the design of the fsl-mph-dr-of.c 
driver to use this as a blueprint for the Faraday driver.
