This is 67d02a1bbb33 ("driver-core: platform: probe of-devices only
using list of compatibles")

If you need a log, something like:

	Reallow binding of of-devices by name

	It turned out that there are valid reasons (e.g. step by step
	conversion to device tree probing using auxdata) to bind
	of-instantiated devices to drivers by name. So revert to the
	original logic.

Best regards
