Subject[PATCH] misc: eeprom: at24: Always append device id even if label property is set.
Date
From: Jérôme Glisse <jglisse@redhat.com>

We need to append device id even if eeprom have a label property set as some
platform can have multiple eeproms with same label and we can not register
each of those with same label. Failing to register those eeproms trigger
cascade failures on such platform (system is no longer working).

This fix regression on such platform introduced with 4e302c3b568e

/*
- * If the 'label' property is not present for the AT24 EEPROM,
- * then nvmem_config.id is initialised to NVMEM_DEVID_AUTO,
- * and this will append the 'devid' to the name of the NVMEM
- * device. This is purely legacy and the AT24 driver has always
- * defaulted to this. However, if the 'label' property is
- * present then this means that the name is specified by the
- * firmware and this name should be used verbatim and so it is
- * not necessary to append the 'devid'.
