IMO that's preferable for this driver. There's no
point in doing anything other than discarding the
probe() method after the driver has been set up;
it'd be doing nothing except wasting memory.

Same thing for ... pretty much all other drivers
for SoC platform devices.

In this series, you cc'd me on four OMAP drivers
(mmci-omap, mmci-omap-hs, omap-rng, omap_udc) which
I *know* that's a completely workable -- and far
preferable -- solution. There might be others.
