gcc warns about the possibilty of accessing a property read from
devicetree in cs35l32_i2c_probe() when it has not been initialized
because CONFIG_OF is disabled:

sound/soc/codecs/cs35l32.c: In function 'cs35l32_i2c_probe':
sound/soc/codecs/cs35l32.c:278:2: warning: 'val' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wmaybe-uninitialized]

The code is actually correct because it checks the dev->of_node
variable first and we know this is NULL here, but by adding a
check for IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_OF), we can let the compiler know
as well, and also generate smaller object code.

This would be a lot nicer if there was an __always_null annotation we
could put on of_node for !OF configurations, that'd Just Work and this
can't be the only case where we have this idiom.
