> As the description of this patch says, we want to resolve the naming confusion around the existing repurposed TDD core (https://wiki.analog.com/resources/eval/user-guides/ad-pzsdr2400tdd-eb/reference_hdl#tdd_controller)
> built for AD9361 and this TDD Engine IP core (https://wiki.analog.com/resources/fpga/docs/axi_tdd) which is a similar core, with more output channels and some extra features. The version numbers in the compatible string are used to differentiate between the two IPs.

Firstly, please fix your mail client to wrap text at a sane width :)
Secondly, where is the binding for that TDD ad9361 specific core that
calling this generic one "adi,axi-tdd" would conflict with?
Grepping the bindings directory of the kernel tree for "adi.*tdd" returns
nothing. If there is an ad9361 specific tdd, I would expect it to have a
compatible like "adi,ad9361-tdd".
