Thanks for helping to debug this. Appreciate it.

:'(

I checked out the code. These prm devices just get populated with NULL
as the parent. So they are effectively top level devices from the
perspective of driver core.

As far as I can tell pdata_quirks_init_clocks() is just adding these
prm devices (amongst other drivers). So I don't expect that to fail.

The goal of fw_devlink is to avoid init level tinkering and it does
help with that in general. But these kinds of quirks are going to need
a few exceptions -- with them being quirks and all. And this change
will avoid an unnecessary deferred probe (that used to happen even
before my change).

The other option to handle this quirk is to create the invalid
(consumer is parent of supplier) fwnode_link between the prm device
and its consumers when the prm device is populated. Then fw_devlink
will end up creating a device link when ocp gets added. But I'm not
sure if it's going to be easy to find and add all those consumers.

I'd say, for now, let's go with this patch below. I'll see if I can
get fw_devlink to handle these odd quirks without breaking the normal
cases or making them significantly slower. But that'll take some time
and I'm not sure there'll be a nice solution.

Thanks,
Saravana
