Well, I think that that's what probe priorities actually for.
I also think that typically ivars should be set by a bus driver.  So maybe it's
not such a good idea to pass data from probe to attach via ivars in child 
 But I could be mistaken about that.

Practically speaking, you most likely don't have to worry about that for drivers
that return BUS_PROBE_SPECIFIC (=0) from their probe methods.  And there is 
only a
few "generic" drivers that can be handled on a case by case basis.
