Yeah so manually applying your patch while updating it against
next-20220624 kernel boots for me. I ended up with the following
changes FYI.

Also, looks like both with the initcall change for prm, and the patch
below, there seems to be also another problem where my test devices no
longer properly idle somehow compared to reverting the your two patches
in next.

Tony
