Subject[PATCH 0/2] Account for uncorrectable failures in probing
Pali raised some concerns around corner case scenarios that probing
may fail on dell-wmi-descriptor causing dell-wmi and dell-smbios-wmi
to be stuck in infinite deferred probing loops.

This patch series accounts for that corner case.

Changes since original submission:
- Add as second patch that catches potential NULL pointer
- Avoid potential race condition between driver init and calling
check for if validation successful
Mario Limonciello (2):
platform/x86: dell-wmi-descriptor: check if memory was allocated
platform/x86: dell-*wmi*: Relay failed initial probe to dependent
