Subject[PATCH V3 1/2] spmi: remove wakeup command before slave probe
According to spmi spec a slave powers up into startup state and then
transitions into active state. Thus, the wakeup command is not required
before calling the slave's probe. The wakeup command is only needed for
slaves that are in sleep state after receiving the sleep command.

This is a bug since spmi master controllers, such as spmi-pmic-arb,
which have no support for wakeup command return an error on that
command and thus fail before reaching a slave driver probe.
