Just a reminder that automatic module loading of this is completely
broken right now (not your problem) due to this stupid idea in the
IPUv3 code:

                if (!ret)
                        ret = platform_device_add(pdev);
                if (ret) {
                        goto err_register;

                 * Set of_node only after calling platform_device_add. Otherwise
                 * the platform:imx-ipuv3-crtc modalias won't be used.
                pdev->dev.of_node = of_node;

setting pdev->dev.of_node changes the modalias exported to userspace,
so udev sees a DT based modalias, which causes it to totally miss any
driver using a non-DT based modalias.

The IPUv3 code needs fixing, not only for imx-media-csi, but also for
imx-ipuv3-crtc too, because that module will also suffer the same

The only solution is... don't fsck with dev->of_node assignment.  In
this case, it's probably much better to pass it in via platform data.
If you then absolutely must have dev->of_node, doing it in the driver
means that you avoid the modalias mess before the appropriate driver
is loaded.  However, that's still not a nice solution because the
modalias file still ends up randomly changing its contents.

As I say, not _your_ problem, but it's still a problem that needs
solving, and I don't want it forgotten about.
