Many other drivers do exactly the same: depend on ARCH_xxx (which is
already OF only) and on OF. Since OF now has all (or almost all) stubs
for !OF case, such "depends on OF" is purely from logical point of view:
the driver will not bind without OF. It will not be useful.

I do not have strong opinion about this but is there a point to change
only this one, while in all other places drivers depend on OF? It will
just bring inconsistency.

Best regards,
Krzysztof
