The device model itself can be made available earlier, but the big blocker
is mainly the use of everything related to the scheduler (threads, msleep()),
which depends on the "early" timer.

I think it can be made to work if msleep() and all thread-related functions
would return -EPROBE_DEFER, but that should be handled in every
single driver, which may be already the case for thread-related functions,
but not for e.g. msleep(), which currently returns void.

when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
