Add a device name field in mipi_dsi_device. This name is different from

Why? What's the use of setting this to the modalias string?

There is no use to set it in the DT case. It's just set for the sake
of consistency between the non-DT and DT devices. For now, dsi->name
is just used for device/driver matching for non-DT devices. There's
no harm in setting it to a valid name for DT devices.

In the non-DT case, the driver creating the DSI device provides the
name by populating a filed in mipi_dsi_device_info.

Matching for DT case would be as it was before. For the non-DT case,
we compare the device and driver names. Other buses (like i2c/spi)

"I2C" and "SPI", please.

perform a non-DT match by comparing the device name and entries in the
driver's id_table. Such a mechanism isn't used for the dsi bus.

"DSI", please.

I think this check is redundant. I'm not aware of any case where the bus
->match() callback is called on a device that isn't on said bus.

You're right. I'll drop this.

Don't you need to check info->type != NULL before doing this?

Why limit ourselves to 20 characters? And why even so complicated? Isn't
the type always static when someone specifies this? Couldn't we simply
use a const char *name here instead?

In the case where the device is registered via DT, we would need
space allocated for 'type' to copy the modalias string into it.
Having const char *type would make it a bit complicated for the
DT path.

The mipi_dsi_device_info struct was based on
the i2c_board_info/spi_board_info structs, and they have
type/modalias members declared as array of chars. I kind of
followed suit without putting to much thought on member type.
