Thanks for your patch!

The reason the driver matches on these SoC-specific compatible values is
that originally the family-specific compatible values did not exist, and
the device nodes in the initial DTS files thus did not use them.  The
family-specific compatible values were added to the DTS files in v4.15.
However, as this was backported to all v4.14-based R-Car BSP releases
(3.6.0 and later), I think it is safe to apply this.
