We only need to maintain those versions that require different
programming model in the list.  For example, if S/PDIF on Vybrid
is completely compatible with imx6q one and uses the exactly same
programming model, we do not need to maintain a compatible string
for Vybrid S/PDIF at all.  Instead, we only need to have something
like below in Vybrid dts file, and S/PDIF driver will just work for it.

	compatible = "fsl,vf600-spdif", "fsl,imx6q-spdif";
