So what happens if a device driver probe function:

- creates a new platform device
- copies the resources from the original to the new device
- copies the of_node from the original to the new device
- registers the new device

Yes, it's broken (because it can result in the same driver being re-probed
by the new device) but we *do* have stuff in the kernel tree which does

FTTC broadband for 0.8mile line: now at 9.7Mbps down 460kbps up... slowly
improving, and getting towards what was expected from it.
