of_match_device could return NULL, and so can cause a NULL
pointer dereference later.

In practice, I don't see how of_match_device() can return NULL here.
Indeed, those drivers only support Device Tree based probing, so
of_match_device() will always return a non-NULL value.

OK you're right, this is too overly cautious.

Saliendra, sorry but I have to drop these patches.
