I see your point.

overall the patch as it is look good, but recently we added more generic
lookups for DT node, looks like part of your patch is un-doing generic
device name lookup.

DT node match lookup is in

of_nvmem_match and nvmem_match_name are duplicating the code here.
Looks like its possible to use generic lookups along with custom match
by splitting __nvmem_device_get() to two functions, one for lookup and
other for refcounting.

Other missing bit is adding this api to documentation in
