Even aside from the whole "not having it store a pointer to the
stack", "static const" is likely to reduce overall memory consumption
/ number of instructions by a tiny bit because we don't need to copy
this structure onto the stack--we can just use it in place.

As written (or by just adding const but not static const): qmp_probe()
is 1840 bytes long.
...and has this snippet:

0xffffff80084a58d4 <+1152>: adrp x1, 0xffffff8008a5b000
<video_cc_sdm845_match_table+280>
0xffffff80084a58d8 <+1156>: add x1, x1, #0x600
0xffffff80084a58dc <+1160>: add x0, sp, #0x10
0xffffff80084a58e0 <+1164>: mov w2, #0x28 // #40
0xffffff80084a58e4 <+1168>: add x22, sp, #0x10
0xffffff80084a58e8 <+1172>: bl 0xffffff800896e800 <memcpy>


With this as static const: qmp_probe is 1820 bytes long.
...and has this snippet:

0xffffff80084a58dc <+1160>: adrp x8, 0xffffff8008a5b000
<video_cc_sdm845_match_table+280>
0xffffff80084a58e0 <+1164>: add x8, x8, #0x550

Setting it to NULL seems like it would be a good idea. Now that I
think on it I believe I've actually tripped over this before trying to
read the '.name' from here... :-P

1. Matches the order of the error handling case above (see unroll_genpds label)

2. In general you avoid more unexpected problems by un-initting in the
reverse order you initted.
