[media] s5c73m3: Export OF module alias information
The SPI core always reports the MODALIAS uevent as "spi:<modalias>" regardless of the mechanism that was used to register the device (i.e: OF or board code) and the table that is used later to match the driver with the device (i.e: SPI id table or OF match table). So drivers needs to export the SPI id table and this be built into the module or udev won't have the necessary information to autoload the needed driver module when the device is added. But this means that OF-only drivers needs to have both OF and SPI id tables that have to be kept in sync and also the dev node compatible manufacturer prefix is stripped when reporting the MODALIAS. Which can lead to issues if two vendors use the same SPI device name for example. To avoid the above, the SPI core behavior may be changed in the future to not require an SPI device table for OF-only drivers and report the OF module alias. So, it's better to also export the OF table even when is unused now to prevent breaking module loading when the core changes.
