It is being used like the compatible string in OF. Look at where
"sof-ipc-test" appears in the SOF patches.

So it has to be a compile time static, and it has to be broadly global
in some fashion since it appears in a mod alias.

I don't think the name "sof-ipc-test" is particularly good by these
metrics.
