Hi,

I'm a bit lost after your comments.

As far as I can read the code of gpiod_get_optional and underlying functions,
if a board doesn't define the "rdy" pin in a respective lookup table, the
function returns NULL and the device gets a chance to work in degraded mode.

NULL may also happen if the driver probes the device before the lookup table
is added. In that case other non-optional pin requests fail with -ENOENT, the
probe is deferred and the device gets a chance to probe successfully in
late_init if the table is added but fails if not.

If the pin is defined but GPIO device providing that pin is not available
(-ENODEV), the probe is initially deferred and may succeed in late_init if the
GPIO device appears but fails otherwise.

Isn't that behavior acceptable, close enough to the expected even if not
strictly because of that -EPROBE_DEFER?

Thanks,
Janusz
