> Exynos7 reuses several devices from older designs, thus historically we kept
> the old (block's) compatible only.  This works fine and there is no bug here,
> however guidelines expressed in
> Documentation/devicetree/bindings/writing-bindings.rst state that:
> 1. Compatibles should be specific.
> 2. We should add new compatibles in case of bugs or features.
> Add compatibles specific to Exynos7 in front of all old-SoC-like compatibles.
> This will also help reviews of new code using existing DTS as template.  No
> functional impact on Linux drivers behavior.
