Hi

That's more about handling -ENODEV rather than -EPROBE_DEFER.

Before the change, if GPIO chip supposed to provide "reset" pin was not ready
during arizona_dev_init(), devm_gpiod_get() returned -ENODEV and device was
initialized in degraded mode, i.e., with no control over the "reset" pin.
After the change, gpiod_get() will return -EPROBE_DEFER in such case and
arizona_dev_init() won't succeed in case the GPIO chip doesn't appear later
for some reason.

Thanks,
Januszz
