My original thought was that it verifies 'more' of the userspace input.
but...

You're right - It looks like the only way to do this correctly is to
match the strncasecmp and the strlen of both strings.

So really we should be using sysfs_streq(). The only limitation there is
that this original code was performing a case-insensitive compare.

Lee - Where did the requirement for case insensitive matching come from
in your original code. Is it expected to be case-insensitive from the
I2C sysfs interface? or are dt-nodes expected to be case-sensitive?

Does anyone see reason that this shouldn't be using sysfs_streq()? or do
we need a sysfs_strcaseeq()...
