I've just hit this on SH7786, which I suspect means that I've got it
wired up incorrectly somehow. This hunk also appears completely unrelated
to the changelog, so I'm wondering what exactly it's for. If this is a
probe attempt then presumably we should be handing down an error and
-ENODEV'ing in the init path? Is it expected that this is non-fatal in
the other reset cases?
