Something I just noticed, when I remove this table, module loading stops
working, even with 'MODULE_ALIAS("platform:tps65912-regulator");'. It
looks like when DT is enabled platform_uevent (drivers/base/platform.c:787)
only sends out the OF MODALIAS event then returns, not sending out the
platform event, is this desired behavior? If so then I will need this
table even though I still create the device and match it on platform
name as you suggested.

That sounds like a bug to me, it'll have broken a bunch of existing

Most OF drivers have the OF MODALIAS.

'platform_uevent' can only emit one MODALIAS string per device (only
the last emitted one seems to count), so for any device with
'dev->of_node' set it will be the OF MODALIAS string. So I need
that table (to generate the OF MODALIAS) or this sub-device module
will not be loaded.
