The string was introduced because the mt7621 clock driver needs to
read some registers creating a regmap from the syscon. The bindings
were added before the clock driver was properly mainlined and at first
the clock driver was using ralink architecture dependent operations
rt_memc_* defined in
'arch/mips/include/asm/mach-ralink/ralink_regs.h'. I forgot to update
the mem controller binding when memc became a syscon so I think this
patch is correct. I also think the sample should use 'syscon' in the
node name instead of memory-controller.
