Have you tried to set some state in the config structure based on the
value of DT_NODE_HAS_COMPAT(DT_DRV_INST(your_instance_number), some_compat)?
That sounds good.
The second part of the problem is iterating over both the lsm6dsl and lsm6ds3 types. Doing two DT_INST_FOREACH_STATUS_OKAY(fn), one for each compat, can give name collisions. Any ideas?

E.g. setting the WHO_AM_I in your config struct based on this, and using
that in your init functions to disambiguate.
