Device tree made this a tad simpler, but it's not unusual to have vendor specific bindings.Mainline would be best, but if (initially) a vendor kernel 'needs' to be made, please don't use some random kernel version, but base it off an Extended Long Term Support kernel. IIUC 5.10 is intended to be an ELTS kernel. It also has the 'side' benefit that it (usually) aligns with a Debian Stable release, which means various tooling should also easily work. And it should also mean that it's 'easy' to get it working on other distros as well.
In my bubble most vendor kernel already do this. They align however not to an ELTS kernel, but to the Android universe. That's at least the case for NXP which is quite dominant in my bubble.
