I'm a bit hesitant about this since we should ideally first match on the
compatible string for any device. We have tried to alleviate the situation
in I2C devices but it has been a bit so-so.

It would be best if we make a separate patch after this tjat adds it
back, set the variant data also in the .data of the match and
use of_device_get_match_data().

It's no strong preference: I will still apply this patch set because
it is overall very very good.

Yours,
Linus Walleij
