It's still the same device as before. The only difference is in
boot/initialization sequence.

No. We had an issue when driver was initialized (and with old version
immediately probed)
just before it happened in the platform devices. In such case .probe() fails.
Above patch makes sure that platform devices are already in the
internal structures and we could match them safely.
