We keep running into cases where device drivers want to know the exact
version of the SoC a they are currently running on. In the past, this
has usually been done through a vendor specific API that can be called
by a driver, or by directly accessing some kind of version register
that is not part of the device itself but that belongs to a global
register area of the chip.

Common reasons for doing this include:

- A machine is not using devicetree or similar for passing data
  about on-chip devices, but just announces their presence using
  boot-time platform devices, and the machine code itself does
  not care about the revision.

- There is existing firmware or boot loaders with existing DT
  binaries with generic compatible strings that do not identify
  the particular revision of each device, but the driver knows
  which SoC revisions include which part

- A prerelease version of a chip has some quirks and we are
  using the same version of the bootloader and the DT blob
  on both the prerelease and the final version. An update of
  the DT binding seems inappropriate because that would involve
  maintaining multiple copies of the dts and/or bootloader.

This introduces the soc_device_match() interface that is meant
to work like of_match_node() but instead of identifying the
version of a device, it identifies the SoC itself using a
vendor-agnostic interface.

Unlike soc_device_match(), we do not do an exact string compare
but instead use glob_match() to allow wildcards in strings.
