Thanks, yeah, I noticed that after sending out the series. I couldn't
find any DT users of the "fast" group though, so perhaps I need to
extend my pruning a bit. First it would be good to see if we could
reach an agreement about how to handle DT compat strings for these
kind of devices though. (devices where instances within one particular
SoC are quite different).
