Nope. This is the right thing to do.

Should platform_get_resource() guarantee that? I think no, otherwise entire MFD
and other logic will collapse.

Here the root of our misunderstanding each other.

Every driver till now works fine and entire model works fine without resources
being requested.

I told you already that if you want your way that has to be done not in 8250
driver, but in generic code (driver core or even resource framework).
