Vadim,

I've got part way through a review of this series several times, and keep
running out of time trying to determine if the solution is appropriate
for the problem.

The deferred probing waiting for the i2c bus to be available seems like
something we might be able to handle more elegantly with:

1) request_module() in the platform driver
2) careful use of init levels (subsys, device, late)

This isn't something I'm well versed in - so I'll reach out here for
some advice from Greg and the i2c maintainer, Wolfram, and list (added
to Cc).

Thanks,
