That's pretty much standard practice. We also use quite a few "2410"
drivers, even though our chip is a 2442.

Another important aspect of the GTA01 etc. naming scheme is that it
gives us compact and consistent names. If we make a GTA03, it'll
be obvious that it's from the same family, no matter what name
marketing will put on it.
