.init_late seems to work after testing quickly

You probably didn't see it because they still have a soc_device parent
but Arnd wanted us to remove it so it is gone.

I'll let you do that.

So the at91_pm_sram_init function tries to get SRAM platform device,
but it doesn't exist yet. Of course, that is fragile because while the
device may exist, it's just luck that it's driver has probed already.
Would using .init_late hook instead of .init_machine work for you?

Ideally, couldn't much of this code be converted to a driver? It's a
bit strange for initcall code to have a driver dependency.

So this one has the strange dependency that the child nodes probe
before the parent node. That's backwards. Probe order is probably
changing from link order (all the devices are created before drivers
register) to device creation order. I think the fix is the pinctrl
driver should just count the gpio child nodes rather than relying on
aliases (which I'm not a fan of either). I can write a patch to do
that.

This breaks the platform in two different ways:
 - PM is not working anymore because of the missing SRAM node
 - the pinctrl driver fails to probe and so many drivers are
   deferring the probe forever

Relevant messages (once the earlycon crap is removed to let earlyprintk
do its job):
