I do not think this is going to take. You are suggesting that we
modify pretty much every driver to supply this deferral reason, and I
doubt it will happen. Can we put this burden on providers that raise
the deferral? I.e. majority of code are using devm API now, so we most
likely know the device for which deferral is being raised. We can have
a list of deferral reasons and their devices and when in device code
once probe is done we could try reconciling it with the deferred
devicelist, and this would mean you only need to implement this in
gpiolib, regulator core, clocks core, etc.

Thanks.
