Currently platforms/drivers needing to get the machine model name are
replicating the same snippet of code. In some case, the OF reference
counting is either missing or incorrect.

This patch adds support to read the machine model name either using
the "model" or the "compatible" property in the device tree root node
to the core OF/DT code.

This can be used to remove all the duplicate code snippets doing exactly
same thing later.

I find five instances of reading only property "model":


Ah sorry you were not Cc-ed in 2/2, but that shows all the instances
that this will be used for.

I have not seen 2/2. I do not see it on the devicetree list or on lkml.

Can you please re-send patch 2/2?

Since it is based on -next, I would prefer to wait until next merge
window to resend. You should be able to check in the link I sent if
that's OK.
