Subject[PATCH 4/5] gpiolib: handle deferral probe error
From

The gpio library should return -EPROBE_DEFER in gpio_request
if gpio driver is not ready. If drivers pass this error code through to
their caller (which they really should) then this will ensure that the
probe is retried later when further devices become available.
