This is kinda expected :( because omap2 arch doesn't call of_platform_default_populate()

Call path:
board-generic.c
DT_MACHINE_START()
.init_machine = omap_generic_init,

omap_generic_init()
pdata_quirks_init(omap_dt_match_table);
of_platform_populate(NULL, omap_dt_match_table,
omap_auxdata_lookup, NULL);

Other affected platforms
arm: mach-ux500
some mips
some powerpc

there are also case when a lot of devices placed under bus node, in such case
of_platform_populate() calls from bus drivers will also suffer from this issue.

I think one option could be to add some parameter to _populate() or introduce new api.

By the way, is there option to disable this feature at all?
Is there Kconfig option?
Is there any reasons why such complex and time consuming code added to the kernel and not implemented on DTC level?


Also, I've came with another diff, pls check.
