First, thank you Andy for noticing.

I actually intended to use Co-Developed-by (a pretty new tag)
in combination with Signed-off-by.
But the tag must have disappeared in some preparation stage..

From Documentation/process/submitting-patches.rst ::

A Co-Developed-by: states that the patch was also created by another developer
along with the original author. This is useful at times when multiple people
work on a single patch. Note, this person also needs to have a Signed-off-by:
line in the patch as well.

I will switch order and add the Co-Developed-by-tag.
Is this correct?

Co-Developed-by: Kent Gustavsson <kent@minoris.se>
Signed-off-by: Kent Gustavsson <kent@minoris.se>
Signed-off-by: Marcus Folkesson <marcus.folkesson@gmail.com>

I will remove the defined(CONFIG_OF) and not use the of_match_ptr()
macro.

Jonathan,
Do you want me to do the same changes for drivers in iio/ ?
I'm probably not the only one looking at other drivers when writing my
own, so I guess this is a rather frequent issue for new drivers?
