You should define a proper and complete binding. If you want to bind the 
gpio-sbu-mux driver to it now until you have a proper driver then that's 
fine. When you have such a driver, then you drop the compatible from the 
gpio-sbu-mux driver.

Note that having the fallback "gpio-sbu-mux" is somewhat problematic 
because the kernel has no mechanism to ensure you bind the most specific 
driver. For that to happen, it would have to support (automatically) 
unbinding one driver and binding to the more specific driver since one 
driver could be built-in and the other a module.
