Thanks for testing all my patches and helping me debug this.

Btw, can you try to keep the subject the same please? Looks like
somewhere in your path [EXT] is added sometimes. lore.kernel.org keeps
the thread together, but my email client (gmail) gets confused.

I'm guessing this happens after the probe error.

Ok, I looked at the dmesg logs and this pretty much confirms my
thought on why the probe ordering wasn't maintained.

The power domains lack a compatible property, so the blk-ctrl is
linked as a consumer of the gpc instead:
[ 0.343905][ T1] blk-ctrl@38320000 Linked as a fwnode consumer
to gpc@303a0000
[ 0.343943][ T1] blk-ctrl@38320000 Linked as a fwnode consumer
to clock-controller@30380000
This ^^ is the device tree parsing figuring out the dependencies
between the DT nodes.

[ 0.368462][ T1] platform 38320000.blk-ctrl: Linked as a
consumer to 30380000.clock-controller
[ 0.368542][ T1] platform 38320000.blk-ctrl: Linked as a
consumer to 303a0000.gpc
This ^^ is converting the DT node dependencies into device links.

So, the only real options are:
1. Fix DT and add a compatible string to the DT nodes.
2. Move the initcall level of the regulator driver so the powerdomain
probe doesn't get deferred. Not ideal that we are playing initcall
chicken to handle the feature meant to remove the need for initcall
chicken. But I see these "device, but won't have a compatible
property" as exceptions and feel it's okay to have to play with
initcall levels to handle those.
3. Provide a helper function that driver that do this (creating
devices for child DT nodes without compatible property) can use to
move/copy their consumer device links to the child devices they add.
And then fix up the gpc driver so that it copies the gpc -- blk-ctrl
device link to the proper power domain.
4. I have another idea for how I could fix that at a driver core
level, but I'm not sure it'll work yet and its definitely not
something I want to try and get in for 5.19 -- too late for that IMHO.

Want to give (2) a shot so that I can still try to keep the cleanup
series that caused this problem (that's the long term goal) while I
give (3) and (4) a shot for 5.20?

Yeah, makes sense in terms of what's going on.
