Comment by Rob in version 3:
Presumably you are getting lucky here (with link order). The kernel
has no logic to decide which driver to bind to if there are 2 matching
drivers. If we did, it would probably be the opposite of what you want
here as we'd pick the most specific match. This driver should probably
bail probe if no dwc3 child node.
