Since there is rather a large number of defconfigs with CONFIG_DM
disabled, and since the relevant code was rather complex

	if (!is_part && dev && mtd->dev == dev) ||
	    !strcmp(name, mtd->name) ||
	    (is_part && mtd->dev && !strcmp(name, mtd->dev->name))

I moved the code into a separate name matching function and for now
created a non-DM version.

Hopefully this will be acceptable and pass CI.
