Yes, sure, sorry for that.

ENOENT is also returned when no matching lookup table is found. That may
happen if consumer dev_name stored in the table differs from dev_name assigned
to the consumer by its bus, the platform bus in this case. For that reason I
think the consumer dev_name should be initialized in the table after the
device is registered, when its actual dev_name can be obtained. If that device
registration happens after the driver is already registered, e.g., at
late_initcall, the device is probed before its lookup table is ready. For that
reason returning EPROBE_DEFER seems better to me even in the ENOENT case.
