Thinking more about this, I have a feeling that this makes things needlessly
complicated, checking the dev_name *ends* in "-mux" resp. "-switch" should be
100% reliable since we call:

dev_set_name(&sw->dev, "%s-switch", dev_name(parent));
dev_set_name(&mux->dev, "%s-mux", dev_name(parent));

When registering the switch / mux, so I believe doing name (suffix) comparison
here is fine and much simpler. Anyways this is just my 2 cents on this, I'm
happy with either solution, your choice.
