Subject[PATCH 3/8] gpio: zynq: Shift zynq_gpio_init() to subsys_initcall level
From: Nava kishore Manne <>

In general situation on-SoC GPIO controller drivers should be probed
after pinctrl/pinmux controller driver, because on-SoC GPIOs utilize a
pin/pad as a resource provided and controlled by pinctrl subsystem.

GPIO must come after pinctrl as gpios may need to mux pins....etc

Looking at Xilinx SoC series pinctrl drivers, zynq*_pinctrl_init()
functions are called at arch_initcall init levels,
so the change of initcall level for gpio-zynq driver from
postcore_initcall to subsys_initcall level is sufficient. Also note
that the most of GPIO controller drivers settled at subsys_initcall

If pinctrl subsystem manages pads with GPIO functions, the change is
needed to avoid unwanted driver probe deferrals during kernel boot.
