This is the correct thing to do.

One note however; I prefer driver to *not* require an alias to be
present. By all means, use an alias if it is available, but the
driver should auto-enumerate if it is not. There is a patch that
makes of_alias_get_id() do this for you, but it hasn't been mainlined
yet and it is still a bit in flux. There will be something that takes
care of this for you, but be aware that the function name may change.

In the mean time, this patch is okay.
