Subject[PATCH v1 2/5] driver core: Add fw_devlink kernel commandline option
From
fwnode_operations.add_links allows creating device links from
information provided by firmware.

fwnode_operations.add_links is currently implemented only by
OF/devicetree code and a specific case of efi. However, there's nothing
preventing ACPI or other firmware types from implementing it.

The OF implementation is currently controlled by a kernel commandline
parameter called of_devlink.

Since this feature is generic isn't limited to OF, add a generic
fw_devlink kernel commandline parameter to control this feature across
firmware types.

+ fw_devlink= [KNL] Create device links between consumer and supplier
+ devices by scanning the firmware to infer the
+ consumer/supplier relationships. This feature is
+ especially useful when drivers are loaded as modules as
+ it ensures proper ordering of tasks like device probing
+ (suppliers first, then consumers), supplier boot state
+ clean up (only after all consumers have probed),
+ suspend/resume & runtime PM (consumers first, then
+ suppliers).
+ Format: { off | permissive | on | rpm }
+ off -- Don't create device links from firmware info.
+ permissive -- Create device links from firmware info
+ but use it only for ordering boot state clean
+ up (sync_state() calls).
+ on -- Create device links from firmware info and use it
+ to enforce probe and suspend/resume ordering.
+ rpm -- Like "on", but also use to order runtime PM.
