I figured it out. There is old-style code (dev_find_device) that is
still using the old vendor, device struct members in the device
struct. chipsetinit calls this code. But the dtc is initializeing the
new devid struct in the static tree, not  the old vendor, device.

All this code has to be changed to use the devid now.

So, this is non-trivial but will reward us when I change it -- the
utility functions, instead of just working with devices that have an
id of a 16-bit device and 16-bit vendor, will work with any
device id.

I'll probably get this wrapped next week, and we'll be a LOT closer.
This work really needed doing.

And we won't need VSA (yet) to make it go!
