The compatible is for the real hardware name as Maxime previously explained. The platform is described in the latter part.
compatible = "oceanic,5205-5inmfd", "allwinner,sun50i-a64";

A64 instead of part-number 5205 seems less confused isn't it? or we need to give more priority with real hardware definition?
