This still looks wrong. Especially if of_find_matching_node() is
going to look for siblings of the /firmware node for the
compatible string for scm device. Why do we check at all? Can't
we just delete this and let of_platform_populate() take care of
it? BTW, OP-TEE driver seems to have a similar problem.
