The patch changes phandle_cache to be a statically declared object, not
a dynamically allocated object, so I don't see why the cache populating
could not be moved earlier. Not a big deal though.

On another note...
I am not happy that no one has bothered to check the performance impact
on the system that was the justification for finally implementing the
phandle cache. I added the person who reported the performance problem
(Chintan Pandya) to the distribution list for the patch, but that address
bounced and no one else from Qualcomm has commented in this thread or
the related thread that led to this patch. I am not unhappy enough
to delay this patch.

This results in gcc and sparse warnings for drivers/of/base.c when
CONFIG_OF_DYNAMIC is not defined because base.c does not wrap the
function with the same "#if defined(".

Should the "# if defined(" be removed from of_private.h? Or
added to base.c?
