I think the best way to solve this would be to put the SMC function ID
as another field into the device tree, so that multiple vendors could
share the same driver even if their firmware interface uses a
different SMC. But they still have to implement the same API for that
SMC, of course, not sure if the Meson driver is suitable for that (but
if it is then I think merging those drivers would be a good idea).
