Should this skip warning that the rebind failed if device_attach

on a laptop I have here I will see a couple "rebind failed: -517" messages
as it comes back out of suspend. Since the device probe eventually happens
once probes are not deferred wondering if this warning this be given in that

What USB driver is returning -EPROBE_DEFER to cause this to be an issue?
Shouldn't that really only be for "platform" drivers and the like? USB
interface drivers should all be "self-contained" within reason.

I see this as well with btusb driver in resume if port was reset.

drivers/base/dd.c really_probe() returns -EPROBE_DEFER if it's called before
device_unblock_probing() is called.

drivers/base/power/main/dpm_complete() will unlock probing after it has
finished resuming all devices and called all the pm_ops .complete callbacks.

The usb_device_pm_ops .complete callback will try to rebind the interface driver
if device was reset at resume, leading to them -EPROBE_DEFER.
I guess we either need to rework a few things, or remove that warning.
