This changelog can be improved IMO.

In fact, the final goal here is to pass (const void *) as the second
argument to acpi_dev_match_cb() (which you could do right away in this
patch if I'm not mistaken) which is because you want to modify the
prototype of bus_find_device().

So why don't you write something like this in the changelog:

"The prototype of bus_find_device() will be unified with that of
class_find_device() subsequently, but for this purpose the callback
functions passed to it need to take (const void *) as the second
argument. Consequently, they cannot modify the memory pointed to by
that argument which currently is not the case for acpi_dev_match_cb().
However, acpi_dev_match_cb() really need not modify the "match" object
passed to it, because acpi_dev_get_first_match_dev() which uses it via
bus_find_device() can easily convert the result of bus_find_device()
into the pointer to return.

For this reason, update acpi_dev_match_cb() to avoid the redundant
memory updates and change the type of its second argument to (const
void *)."

And why not to change the type of the second arg to "const void *data" here?
