The macro function of_match_ptr() is NULL if CONFIG_OF is not set, then
Clang compiler would complain the of_device_id variable is unused.

But using of_match_ptr() is space saving, for this case, the unused structure
'sprd_hwspinlock_of_match' would be not built into symbol table if CONFIG_OF
is not set, probably depends on the compiler though.

So adding __maybe_unsed seems a good approach to fix this warning.

As noted on the first line of the probe function, this driver isn't
going to do anything when CONFIG_OF is disabled - and I don't think we
should worry too much about space savings during COMPILE_TEST.

So I would prefer that we simply drop the of_match_ptr()

But I believe that's what you're saying as well Baolin?

Regards,
Bjorn

Ok, that's what the v1 does.
Bjorn, could you please pick up the 1st patch in v1 [1]?

Thanks,
