Unfortunately this is becoming a pattern and we are ending up
with a static ordering of "subsystems" init (even though for this
LPC series it is just the Hisilicon driver that requires this call)
and I am not sure I see any way of avoiding it. I think that's always
been the case in x86, with fewer subsystems/kernel paths to care
about, I wanted to flag this up though to check your opinion since
I am not sure this is the right direction we are taking.

I also think that relying on _DEP to build any dependency is not
entirely a) usable (owing to legacy bindings and previous _DEP misuse)
and b) compliant with ACPI bindings given that _DEP has to be used
for operation regions only.

Thoughts ?

Thanks,
Lorenzo
