Ok, took a look.

The problem is that there are two drivers for the same device and they
both initialize this device.

gpc: gpc@303a0000 {
compatible = "fsl,imx8mq-gpc";
}

$ git grep -l "fsl,imx7d-gpc" -- drivers/
drivers/irqchip/irq-imx-gpcv2.c
drivers/soc/imx/gpcv2.c

IMHO, this is a bad/broken design.

So what's happening is that fw_devlink will block the probe of
38320000.blk-ctrl until 303a0000.gpc is initialized. And it stops
blocking the probe of 38320000.blk-ctrl as soon as the first driver
initializes the device. In this case, it's the irqchip driver.

I'd recommend combining these drivers into one. Something like the
patch I'm attaching (sorry for the attachment, copy-paste is mangling
the tabs). Can you give it a shot please?
