The MX8M CM7 boot via SMC call is problematic, since not all versions
of ATF support this interface. Document MMIO support used to boot the
CM7 on MX8MN/MP instead and discern MMIO interface using DT compatible
string. Document GPR register syscon phandle which is required by the
MMIO interface too.

Note that the MMIO being discerned using compatible string is similar
approach to "st,stm32mp1-rcc" vs "st,stm32mp1-rcc-secure".

Same hardware should not have two compatibles, depending on the bus it is.

Yes, I know, but for whatever reason the ST does, so I picked the same
approach here. What else would you suggest, boolean properly like Peng wrote

The compatible is also easier to handle on driver level, at least in Linux,
see 2/2 .

IIRC, in the ST case, the programming model presented to the OS is
different, so different compatibles. Seems like this case is similar.

However, can't you try and SMC call and if it fails, use MMIO?

They already do that to determine the CM4 CPU state, and if the SMC errors out, then they indicate the CPU is detached. So no, not to my knowledge, which indeed would be my preferred solution though.
