No. Having a compatible doesn't mean you have to have a driver.

A SPI slave could provide a regmap, right?

A shared interrupt or a parent driver that creates an irqchip like MFD
drivers often do.

In any case, I'm was suggesting that you do any of this now. I just
want the binding to be designed to work either way.

Ah, yes. Should be serial@... I'm fine if both the parent and child
are named serial@...
