Subject: [PATCH 4.14 065/193] w1: fix the resume command API

[ Upstream commit 62909da8aca048ecf9fbd7e484e5100608f40a63 ]

>>From the DS2408 datasheet [1]:
"Resume Command function checks the status of the RC flag and, if it is set,
 directly transfers control to the control functions, similar to a Skip ROM
 command. The only way to set the RC flag is through successfully executing
 the Match ROM, Search ROM, Conditional Search ROM, or Overdrive-Match ROM

The function currently works perfectly fine in a multidrop bus, but when we
have only a single slave connected, then only a Skip ROM is used and Match
ROM is not called at all. This is leading to problems e.g. with single one
DS2408 connected, as the Resume Command is not working properly and the
device is responding with failing results after the Resume Command.

This commit is fixing this by using a Skip ROM instead in those cases.
The bandwidth / performance advantage is exactly the same.
