I'm confused now. According to Marvell IR [0] they are NASDAQ-listed as
MRVL. My understanding is that in that case the official vendor prefix
becomes mrvl. Why not here? Would be good to understand for other
pending vendors such as Actions Semi.

Any comments on the iap140 vs. pxa1908 naming? The Communication
Processors section has disappeared from, so I couldn't
verify whether IAP140 was renamed from PXA1908 or whether both coexist
and we should add a second compatible string here?
