[PATCH v4 12/22] pwm: Probe PWM chip devices on demand

From: Tomeu Vizoso
Date: Mon Sep 07 2015 - 08:30:55 EST

When looking up a PWM chip through its OF node, probe it if it hasn't

The goal is to reduce deferred probes to a minimum, as it makes it very
cumbersome to find out why a device failed to probe, and can introduce
very big delays in when a critical device is probed.
