Using platform_driver_probe() prevents deferred probe which is problem
because you get phy, clocks from probe, and these calls could return
EPROBE_DEFFER.

Also dw_pcie_host_init() called from spear13xx_add_pcie_port() is
annotated as __init. I wanted send a patch which removes __init from
dw_pcie_host_init() but I haven't time, yet.

regards,
Stan
