The work got delayed mainly because of the request for the formal
audit of each usage vs cache coherency. Since it is rather small
cleanup and such audit is time consuming it became a low priority.

Or just fix it by re-adding removed Exynos chipid compatible checking:

It provides sysfs information about SoC/platform and is useful on its
own (for debugging, reporting etc. purposes). Maybe not terrible useful
but on OTOH the driver is only ~100 LOC.
