We had earlier tested our changes on 4.14 kernel and the explicit return of 
-EPROBE_DEFER was needed in the inverter driver.

probably the commit 6662ae6af82df10259a70c7569b4c12ea7f3ba93 ( gpiolib: Keep 
returning EPROBE_DEFER when we should)

has fixed the issue and now it returns -EPROBE_DEFER.  you can ignore this 
comment as of now. I will test and let you know if needed.


Thanks,

Harish
