[PATCH 1/2] iio: adc: at91_adc: use of_device_get_match_data() helper

This tries to solve a warning reported by the lkp bot:

>> drivers/iio/adc/at91_adc.c:1439:34: warning: unused variable
>> 'at91_adc_dt_ids' [-Wunused-const-variable]
   static const struct of_device_id at91_adc_dt_ids[] = {
   1 warning generated.

This shows up with 'compiler: clang version 12.0.0' and W=1 (as the bot

Forward declarations for global variables can be a bit weird; forward
function declarations are more common.

Maybe another fix for this would have been to prefix with 'extern' the
'at91_adc_dt_ids' variable, thus making it more friendly as a forward
declaration. It would look weird, but it would work.

But, we can avoid that forward declaration altogether simply by obtaining
the private data with of_device_get_match_data().

This appeared after commit 4027860dcc4c ("iio: Kconfig: at91_adc: add
COMPILE_TEST dependency to driver"), which put this driver on the lkp's bot
