I believe this patch causes a regression on r8a7740/armadillo, where the
pin controller is also a GPIO controller, and lcd0 needs a hog
(cfr. arch/arm/boot/dts/r8a7740-armadillo800eva.dts):

-GPIO line 176 (lcd0) hogged as output/high
-sh-pfc e6050000.pfc: r8a7740_pfc handling gpio 0 -> 211
+gpiochip_add_data: GPIOs 0..211 (r8a7740_pfc) failed to register
+sh-pfc e6050000.pfc: failed to init GPIO chip, ignoring...
sh-pfc e6050000.pfc: r8a7740_pfc support registered

Hence all drivers using GPIOs fail to initialize because their GPIOs never
become available.

Adding debug prints to the failure paths shows that the call to
of_pinctrl_get() in of_gpiochip_add_pin_range() fails with -EPROBE_DEFER.
Adding a debug print to the top of gpiochip_add_data() makes the problem go
away, presumably because it introduces a delay that allows the delayed work
to kick in...

Jon's fix ("pinctrl: core: Fix panic when pinctrl devices with hogs are
unregistered") doesn't help, as it affects unregistration only.

Changing the above line to "if (0 && pinctrl_dt_has_hogs(pctldev))"
fixes the issue for me.
