Without fetching config info from the DT, the CCI driver is not usable,
so it makes no sense to build this driver without CONFIG_OF.

Your previous patch [1] looked sensible, but I don't see any responses
on lakml. Are you still pursuing that patch, or is this patch intended
as a replacement?


Dummy functions for things like of_find_matching_node() might be useful
for drivers that can fall back to other config mechanisms if OF is
unavailable, but that is a separate discussion.

arm-cci is not such a driver, and any such drivers that exist toady
must be coping without the dummy OF functions.
