Subject[PATCH v4 1/3] hwmon: iio_hwmon: delay probing with late_initcall
iio_channel_get_all returns -ENODEV when it cannot find either phandles and
properties in the Device Tree or channels whose consumer_dev_name matches
iio_hwmon in iio_map_list. The iio_map_list is filled in by iio drivers
which might be probed after iio_hwmon.

This makes sure iio_hwmon is probed after all iio drivers which provides
channels to iio_hwmon are probed, be they present in the DT or using

This replaces module_platform_driver() by an explicit code variant which
calls late_initcall() install of module_init(), meaning it probes after
all the drivers using module_init() as their init.

Signed-off-by: Quentin Schulz <>

- use platform_driver_register instead of platform_register_drivers,

- use late_initcall instead of deferring probe,
