I haven't studied this more yet, but yes, I can see of_modalias_node 
stripping the vendor prefix on purpose. I do wonder how this is supposed 
to work, it would make more sense to me to keep the vendor prefix.

Is the spi_device_id supposed to be without vendor prefix? With a quick 
grep, this seems to be the case.
