A Fixes tag does not in itself imply that something should be
backported, we have CC-stable tags for that.

And if this was just about the name, I'd agree with you that a Fixes tag
is not warranted either, but the way I see this this is more than that
as the "spmi" name suggests that these "devices" sit directly on the
SPMI bus which would require a different binding entirely.

The naming therefore becomes misleading and should be fixed to assist
any casual consumer of these binding documents.
