Subject: [PATCH] iio: adc: ad7192: fix null de-ref crash during probe

When the 'spi_device_id' table was removed, it omitted to cleanup/fix the
  'indio_dev->name = spi_get_device_id(spi)->name;'

After that patch 'spi_get_device_id(spi)' returns NULL, so this crashes
during probe with null de-ref.

This change assigns the 'compatible' string from the DT table, as the new
'indio_dev->name'. As such, the new device/part name now looks like
'adi,ad719x', and now has the vendor prefix.

Note that this change is not doing any NULL check to the return value of
'of_match_device()'. This shouldn't happen, and if it does it's likely a
framework error on the probe side.

Fixes 66614ab2be38: ("staging: iio: adc: ad7192: removed spi_device_id")
