The cover letter  of the 'deferred_probe_timeout logic clean up'
series  has more context:
A lot of the deferred_probe_timeout logic is redundant with
fw_devlink=on. Also, enabling deferred_probe_timeout by default breaks
a few cases.
This series tries to delete the redundant logic, simplify the frameworks
that use driver_deferred_probe_check_state(), enable
deferred_probe_timeout=10 by default, and fixes the nfsroot failure
The overall idea of this series is to replace the global behavior of
driver_deferred_probe_check_state() where all devices give up waiting on
supplier at the same time with a more granular behavior:
1. Devices with all their suppliers successfully probed by late_initcall
probe as usual and avoid unnecessary deferred probe attempts.
2. At or after late_initcall, in cases where boot would break because of
fw_devlink=on being strict about the ordering, we
a. Temporarily relax the enforcement to probe any unprobed devices
that can probe successfully in the current state of the system.
For example, when we boot with a NFS rootfs and no network device
b. Go back to enforcing the ordering for any devices that haven't
3. After deferred probe timeout expires, we permanently give up waiting
on supplier devices without drivers. At this point, whatever devices
can probe without some of their optional suppliers end up probing.
In the case where module support is disabled, it's fairly
straightforward and all device probes are completed before the initcalls
Does anything speak against returning -EPROBE_DEFER directly from dwc3-qcom's
probe()? Now with deferred_probe_timeout > 0 there should be at least no endless
