Subject: [RFC 4/4] slimbus: ngd: Fix kfree() of const memory on setting driver_override

Platform driver driver_override field should not be initialized from
const memory because the core later kfree() it.  If driver_override is
manually set later through sysfs, kfree() of old value leads to:

    $ echo "new_value" > /sys/bus/platform/drivers/.../driver_override

    kernel BUG at ../mm/slub.c:3960!
    Internal error: Oops - BUG: 0 [#1] PREEMPT SMP ARM
