A while back at least using those init lists were not well received even
for GPIO/pinctrl drivers:

https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/CACRpkdYk0zW12qNXgOstTLmdVDYacu0Un+8quTN+J_azOic7AA@mail.gmail.com/T/#mf0596982324a6489b5537b0531ac5aed60a316ba

I still think we should make an exception for GPIO/pinctrl and use
earlier initcalls. Platform GPIO/pinctrl drivers provide basic
infrastructure often used by many other drivers, we want to have them
loaded early. It avoids unnecessary EPROBE_DEFER and hence probably even
boots faster.

And in this case it even resolves real world issues.

This should definitely go in, at least as a stop gap solution.
