Hmm. Returning the compatible isn't compatible with the ABI.

I think we will have to introduce a bit of indirection here to
allow for a 'chip info' type structure with the name and the magic ID value
that is currently in the data field of the of_device_id table.

That way we can have the name explicit.   Note I don't want to
mess around with stripping the prefix off the compatible as that sort of
thing is hard to read.
