cdns is the official Device Tree binding vendor prefix for Cadence:

$ grep Cadence Documentation/devicetree/bindings/vendor-prefixes.txt
cdns	Cadence Design Systems Inc.

And it is already widely used throughout the kernel for Cadence
drivers. See drivers/watchdog/cadence_wdt.c, drivers/spi/spi-cadence.c,
drivers/i2c/busses/i2c-cadence.c, etc.
