Yeah, so I stack-dumped on the zero allocations and indeed they are
called from cleanup functions:
devm_kzalloc(sizeof(*indices) * pctldev->num_functions, ...)
(and another one I don't know from the top of the my head, logs at home)

So my hunch was that once EPROBE_DEFER triggers the devres cleanup, it
uses some reverse list traversal to release all allocated resources
(backwards!), so missing those which get (appended) during the process.
But I don't think that would not work with the locking.
So I have to dig deeper tonight in my logs.

Just curious why this does (or did) not happen for other users, because
the affected code paths seem rather generic to me.
Is that due to probing order being unfortunate in our case and the
pinctrl driver is never released due to DEFER anywhere else?
