Add a wrappers to lookup a device by name for a given driver, by various

You should put the "here are the new functions that everyone can use"
much earlier in the patch series, otherwise it's hard to dig out.

Sure, I will add it in the respective commits.

And if you send just those as an individual series, and they look good,
I can queue them up now so that everyone else can take the individual
patches through their respective trees.

I see. I think I may be able to do that.
