Thanks for the example. I generally start looking from dts (not dtsi)
files in case there are some DT property override/additions after the
dtsi files are included in the dts file. But I'll assume for now
that's not the case. If there's a specific dts file for a board I can
look from that'd be helpful to rule out those kinds of issues.

For now, I looked at arch/arm/boot/dts/omap4.dtsi.

Yes, I understand the issue. But driver_deferred_probe_check_state()
was deleted because fw_devlink=on should have short circuited the
probe attempt with an  -EPROBE_DEFER before reaching the bus/driver
probe function and hitting this -ENOENT failure. That's why I was
asking the other questions.

Right, I was aware -ENOENT would be returned if we got this far. But
the point of this series is that you shouldn't have gotten that far
before your pm domain device is ready. Hence my questions from the
earlier reply.

Can I get answers to rest of my questions in the first reply please?
That should help us figure out why fw_devlink let us get this far.
Summarize them here to make it easy:
* Are you running with fw_devlink=on?
* Is the"ti,omap4-prm-inst"/"ti,omap-prm-inst" built-in in this case?
* If it's not built-in, can you please try deferred_probe_timeout=0
and deferred_probe_timeout=30 and see if either one of them help?
* Can I get the output of "ls -d supplier:*" and "cat
supplier:*/status" output from the sysfs dir for the ocp device
without this series where it boots properly.
