Thanks for your patch, which is now commit 83b9148df2c95e23 ("driver
core: bus: bus iterator cleanups") in driver-core-next.

I have bisected an early kernel crash on the Renesas Salvator-XS
board to this commit:

Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual
address 0000000000000028
...

If bus_to_subsys() is called from an early_initcall(), bus_kset is
still NULL, causing a crash.

Before, the !bus->sp check prevented the crash...

... and instructed soc_device_match() to go into
early_soc_dev_attr mode.

I have sent a fix
"[PATCH] driver core: bus: Handle early calls to bus_to_subsys()"
