There may be no device, but resource. And we become again to the something like
deferred probe ugly hack.

The real solution is to rework device driver model in the kernel that it will
create a graph of dependencies and then simply follow it. But actually it should
be more than 1 graph, because there are resources and there are power, clock and
resets that may be orthogonal to the higher dependencies (like driver X provides
a resource to driver Y).
