Sorry I don't follow you on this one.. We should always add "ti,omap3630"
where "ti,omap36xx" is currently used so we can eventually get rid of
"ti,omap36xx". And the same for 34xx.

Yeah sounds like logicpd-som-lv-37xx-devkit.dts currently still needs
"ti,omap36xx" for now.

If modifying omap3-ldp.dts, also add "ti,omap3430" in additon to
"ti,omap34xx" that it already has.

So basically let's assume the following:

"ti,omap3430" == "ti,omap34xx"
"ti,omap3630" == "ti,omap36xx"

This means code needs to parse both.

And eventually we just drop the "xx" variants.

So while patching compatibles, let's also update for this to
avoid multiple patches churning the same compatibles over and
