[PATCH v2 1/4] mtd: core: provide unique name for nvmem device, take two

Commit c048b60d39e1 ("mtd: core: provide unique name for nvmem device")
tries to give the nvmem device a unique name, but fails badly if the mtd
device doesn't have a "struct device" associated with it, i.e. if
CONFIG_MTD_PARTITIONED_MASTER is not set. This will result in the name
"(null)-user-otp", which is not unique. It seems the best we can do is
to use the compatible name together with a unique identifier added by
the nvmem subsystem by using NVMEM_DEVID_AUTO.

Fixes: c048b60d39e1 ("mtd: core: provide unique name for nvmem device")

 - actually use NVMEM_DEVID_AUTO as described in the commit message
