[PATCH v5 1/2] dmaengine: mxs: use platform_driver_register

From: Dario Binacchi
Date: Tue Jul 12 2022 - 12:11:38 EST

Driver registration fails on SOC imx8mn as its supplier, the clock
control module, is probed later than subsys initcall level. This driver
uses platform_driver_probe which is not compatible with deferred probing
and won't be probed again later if probe function fails due to clock not
being available at that time.

This patch replaces the use of platform_driver_probe with
platform_driver_register which will allow probing the driver later again
when the clock control module will be available.
