Let's just get rid of the of_machine_is_compatible() checks here.

When dra7xxx_check_revision we already know it's dra7, no point for
any of the string parsing with of_machine_is_compatible(). We just
risk things going wrong.

And we already have omap_revision that gets populated based on the
hawkeye register, so let's use that instead. Can you please update
this patch just to use is_dra7xx() macros like the other use?
