It has a bogosort kind of elegance. :)

Also this might be a silly question (I haven't been following this issue
for very long), but as the only place that can really know what devices
depend on each other, in a generic kernel, is the DT (or whatever
abstraction) will we not eventually need to solve this issue there? Could
we just add a "depends-on = <&phandle>;" to nodes when we know they are
needed for our board?
