Let's just take a step back - why is SMMU probe failing? That seems to
be the primary issue here, because it implies that either your hardware,
firmware or kernel is broken, any of which would make boot failure
somewhat unsurprising anyway.

Yes, this is just an instance of the general probe-deferral problem,
e.g. once you have multiple dependencies it's possible to end up in a
stalemate where everything including the IOMMU ends up on the deferred
probe list with nothing to kick it and make progress again.

Furthermore it seems to me that the whole premise in this patch is
flawed, since even genuine probe failure may well be transient - just
because one attempt failed doesn't mean a later attempt can't succeed.
Thus "the most recent probe attempt failed" cannot be considered a
fundamentally different state from "no driver is currently bound".
