Sorry, I don't have all the context. If I understand correctly what you
mean, the GPIO driver is probed through the DT, but the DM9000 driver
is probed in a legacy way from the board file, and you have the case
where the DM9000 platform_device gets registered before the GPIOs are
actually available? In this case, what about having the
of_platform_populate() call *before* the platform_device_register() for
your DM9000 ? Again, I don't have all the context, so I might very well
be getting the situation incorrectly.

Of course, ideally, the DM9000 driver should be probed using the DT,
but I guess this needs the SMC DT binding that is still being
discussed, if I followed correctly.
