Thanks a lot. I will look at this and how it can be used.

Anyhow I've seen that concept of parallel probe is not so new. It was
in 2.6.18 and removed in 2.619.
Probably different approach, maybe more would be adding a parallel
initial function.
Probe will just register to the bus and relevant subsystem, it will be fast.
Optional Initialization function will run after probe in different
thread, this would be the place for running FW download.
Device won't be considered initialized till this function haven't
completed or is not implemented.


Any comments are welcome.

Thanks
Tomas
