That many platform *may* need this, yeah, sure. We can probably even
share the same driver for them.

That all of those theretical platform will have the exact same
behaviour, down to how the data is stored in the nvmem, and how many
bins you have? I seriously doubt so.

No. You need to have the SoC name in there, and you can drop the
v2. There's never been a v1.
