I don't think this is the right approach. We don't want to be adding
such checks everywhere the of_node is used. A better way might be to
not set of_node at all in the absence of a proper "compatible" string.

Then there's the problem of how to resolve the incompatibility between
the generic USB and Exynos bindings. One possible fix could be to use
a child node of the controller node to represent the root hub. Since
the driver currently doesn't work at all if a devicetree has nodes for
USB devices, there should be no compatibility concerns.
