The driver was previously probed with platform_driver_probe. This does
not allow the driver to be probed again later if probe function
returns -EPROBE_DEFER. This patch replace the use of
platform_driver_probe with module_platform_driver which allows that.

You are also changing the init call here, there is a reason why
dmaengine drivers are subsys_initcall.. have you tested this?

I understood that the subsys initcall was there to probe the DMA driver
earlier than other drivers (at least I guess this was the reason). I
also tested it and can confirm you this works as expected on my
platform (sama5d2_xplained and sama5d27_som1).

In my configuration, the clocks are provided using SCMI and the SCMI
driver probes them later than other drivers. 

With the current subsys_initcall, platform_driver_probe calls
__platform_driver_probe which will eventually calls platform_probe.
This one will fails because SCMI clocks are not available at this time.
And as said in the kernel doc, __platform_driver_probe is incompatible
with deferred probing. This leads to failure of all drivers that needs
DMA channels provbided by at_xdmac.

With module_platform_driver, the at_xdmac driver is correctly probed
again later and all drivers that depends on DMA channels provided by
this one are also correctly probed. The deferred probing mechanism seems
to do its job correctly (at least in my case).

That is correct

Heh, clocks should get probed even earlier

OK would then recommend making it like module_platform_driver ie remove
platform_driver_probe, so the defer probe would work, but keep the init
at subsys level. That should work for you while keeping this sane for
folks that dont need this

Yes, even clocksources might need them... But that's another story.

Ok, I'll modify it this way, thanks.
