Drivers that are registered at an initcall level may have to
wait until late_init before the probe deferral mechanism can
retry their probe functions. It is possible that their
dependencies were resolved much earlier, in some cases even
before the next initcall level. Invoke one probe retry cycle
at every _sync initcall level, allowing these drivers to be
probed earlier.
