This series [1] has a high chance of fixing it for you if
CONFIG_MODULES is disabled in your set up. Can you give it a shot?

The real problem is that arch/arm/mach-imx/avic.c doesn't set the
OF_POPULATED flag for the "fsl,avic" node. fw_devlink uses this
information to know that this device node will never have a struct
device created for it. The proper way to do this for root IRQCHIP
nodes is to use IRQCHIP_DECLARE(). I Cc'ed you on a clean up patch for
IMX [2], can you please give [2] a shot *without* [1] and with
CONFIG_MODULES enabled? Things should boot properly with this
combination too.

Btw, for future reference, you can try enabling the logs in
device_links_check_suppliers() to see what devices are being blocked
on what supplier nodes.
