Wait, I'm confused.  What does the of_platform_driver.name string have to do 
with the compatible field in the device tree?  Like I said earlier, I'm just 
following the example of the other QE device drivers.  If you want me to break 
that example, I'm going to need an explanation why the other drivers do it wrong.
