SubjectRe: [PATCHv2 1/2] pci: spear: Use platform_driver_probe instead of platform_driver_register
please don't top posting.

yes, it uses deferred probe see devm_phy_get() and devm_clk_get() calls
in .probe and how the returned values are checked.

IMO this is expected because spear13xx_pcie_driver is annotated as
__initdata.

The proper solution was pointed by Kumar below, but we also need to
remove the __init from dw_pcie_host_init() which is called from driver
.probe.
