Hmm. No real reason if you look from this POV. Just didn't thought in
this direction.

BTW: Documentation/devicetree/fsl/lbc.txt doesn't talk at all about "compatible"
property. Maybe one can add there something (like asking to add simple-bus
for new platforms). I feel myself too unexperienced to fix that.

With best wishes
