This also cleans up the kernel log in the case where you've not got a
driver enabled that you need (or it's not loading for some reason) which
isn't super helpful when you're trying to figure out why the driver
won't probe. There's not even anything at debug level, that would
probably be fine.

The ideal thing here would be to work on setting up the dependency
information based on DT and using that to try to sort initialization
order so we try things in an order that minimizes the number of failed
tries.
