Good point Andy.  There are numerous drivers in IIO that do the same
over enthusiastic including of linux/of.h just to get of_device_id
definition.  Would be good to clean those up to just include this
instead.

This is going to cause very little noise so if there are any new
contributors reading this it would be a nice sensible cleanup to get
started with!
