On SC7180 devices, it is observed that dwc3 probing is deferred
because device_links_check_suppliers() finds that '88e3000.phy'
isn't ready yet.

As a part of its probe call, dwc3-qcom driver checks if dwc3 core
is wakeup capable or not. If the dwc3 core is wakeup capable, driver
configures dwc-qcom's power domain to be always ON. Also it configures
dp/dm interrupts accordingly to support wakeup from system suspend.

More info regarding the same can be found at:
commit d9be8d5c5b03 ("usb: dwc3: qcom: Keep power domain on to retain controller status"
commit 6895ea55c385 ("usb: dwc3: qcom: Configure wakeup interrupts during suspend")

In the event, dwc3 probe gets deferred and is processed after dwc3-qcom
probe, driver ends up reading the wakeup capability of dwc3 core as false
leading to instability in suspend/resume path.

To avoid this scenario, ensure dwc3_probe is successful by checking
if appropriate driver is assigned to it or not after the of_platform_populate
call. If it isn't then defer dwc3-qcom probe as well.

Why not limit this check to a device type like your changelog mentions?

Hi Greg,

I wanted to make it common to any device using this driver. Although on devices
ike SC7280,this issue is not seen but the code would hold good. Do you see any
concerns if we do it this way ?
