Indeed.  You're better of registering an soc_device_attribute using
soc_device_register(), after which any driver can use soc_device_match()
to differentiate based on the SoC revision.

There's drivers/soc/rockchip ;-)

Doing that only for affected IP blocks may miss integration differences.
Of course, you can always resort to soc_device_match() to handle those...
