Yeah, that may be sufficient, but looking closer at this now, it seems
the name pointers (su1_fb and su2_fb) are only used as booleans, and the
fb_name pointer in struct as3711_bl_data is never used at all.

So cleaning that up somehow (e.g. and maybe even dropping non-dt
probing) would also work.

But since this is a separate, and less critical issue, I think it needs
to be done as a follow up to this one.
