Subject: [PATCH 0175/1795] dt-bindings: net: sh_eth: add R-Car Gen[12]
fallback compatibility strings
Add fallback compatibility strings for R-Car Gen 1 and 2.
In the case of Renesas R-Car hardware we know that there are generations of
SoCs, f.e. Gen 1 and 2. But beyond that its not clear what the relationship
between IP blocks might be. For example, I believe that r8a7790 is older
than r8a7791 but that doesn't imply that the latter is a descendant of the
former or vice versa.
We can, however, by examining the documentation and behaviour of the
hardware at run-time observe that the current driver implementation appears
to be compatible with the IP blocks on SoCs within a given generation.
For the above reasons and convenience when enabling new SoCs a
per-generation fallback compatibility string scheme is being adopted for
drivers for Renesas SoCs.
Note that R-Car Gen2 and RZ/G1 have many compatible IP blocks. The
approach that has been consistently taken for other IP blocks is to name
common code, compatibility strings and so on after R-Car Gen2.
