Sorry, I missed the fact that the devm_kfree() was dropped, the actual
problem still remains, although it no longer results in a panic.

As ufs_qcom_init() returns from not having found the phy it the variant
data will be a zero-initialized object. The error path of
ufshcd_hba_init() will then take us through ufs_qcom_setup_clocks(),
which will pass the check for a NULL variant data and use the
uninitialized host object.

I can update the commit message to reflect the new state of things.

Regards,
Bjorn
