of_device_id

Should also assign of_match_table in the driver structure so that
we will use these to match when probing rather than just
for module autoloading which is what this does.  See for
example drivers/adc/max1363.c

Do not use of_match_ptr, just assign directly to avoid blocking
the random ACPI probing with DT bindings route.

This does make me wonder if the adt7518 is compatible or not
as those are fairly random part numbers!

Thanks,

Jonathan
