The actual name doesn't matter much, as long as it is "unique
enough"; a name that matches a name already in use in real life
is preferred; normally the name is just the name of the first
device that had this specific programming interface.

But choose whatever you want.  It is a good idea to always
put the exact name of the specific device in there, too, btw,
so you'd end up with "fsl,mpc8241-i2c", "fsl,ppc-i2c" if your
suggestion is accepted.
