Subject[PATCH v1] gpiolib: Don't probe gpio_device if it's not the primary device
Dmitry reported[1] boot error messages caused by
commit 4731210c09f5 ("gpiolib: Bind gpio_device to a driver to enable fw_devlink=on by default").

gpio-1022 (cpu-pwr-req-hog): hogged as input
max77620-pinctrl max77620-pinctrl: pin gpio4 already requested by max77620-pinctrl; cannot claim for gpiochip1
max77620-pinctrl max77620-pinctrl: pin-4 (gpiochip1) status -22
max77620-pinctrl max77620-pinctrl: could not request pin 4 (gpio4) from group gpio4 on device max77620-pinctrl
gpio_stub_drv gpiochip1: Error applying setting, reverse things back
gpio_stub_drv: probe of gpiochip1 failed with error -22

This happens because when we try to probe a device, driver core calls
into pinctrl to set up the pins. However, if the GPIO DT node already
has a proper device created and probed, trying to probe the gpio_device
with a stub driver makes the pins be claimed twice. pinctrl doesn't like
this and throws an error.

So, this patch makes sure the gpio_stub_drv doesn't match with a
gpio_device if it's not the primary device for the fwnode.

Fixes: 4731210c09f5 ("gpiolib: Bind gpio_device to a driver to enable fw_devlink=on by default")
Signed-off-by: Saravana Kannan <>
Tested-by: Dmitry Osipenko <>

This will need to go into driver-core because the Fixes is in
driver-core too.
