As noted on the first line of the probe function, this driver isn't
going to do anything when CONFIG_OF is disabled - and I don't think we
should worry too much about space savings during COMPILE_TEST.

So I would prefer that we simply drop the of_match_ptr()

But I believe that's what you're saying as well Baolin?
