Oh good, folks are learning. :) Is the vendor ID (and revision) discoverable even if no vendor extensions? If so, then I'm more comfortable with "mipi-i3c-hci" on it's own. The exception will be if there's setup needed to discover the h/w which seems likely. In that case, we should probably do compatible strings based on VID/PID like PCI, USB, etc. No need to define that now I guess, but please add some sort of summary of the above about the discoverability of the HCI implementer and features.
