[PATCH 08/22] platform/chrome: cros_ec_typec: Purge blocking switch devlinks

From: Stephen Boyd
Date: Sat Feb 10 2024 - 02:12:46 EST

From: Prashant Malani <pmalani@xxxxxxxxxxxx>

When using OF graph, the fw_devlink code will create links between the
individual port driver (cros-ec-typec here) and the parent device for
a Type-C switch (like mode-switch). Since the mode-switch will in turn
have the usb-c-connector (i.e the child of the port driver) as a
supplier, fw_devlink will not be able to resolve the cyclic dependency

As a result, the mode-switch driver probe() never runs, so mode-switches
are never registered. Because of that, the port driver probe constantly
fails with -EPROBE_DEFER, because the Type-C connector class requires all
switch devices to be registered prior to port registration.

To break this deadlock and allow the mode-switch registration to occur,
purge all the usb-c-connector nodes' absent suppliers. This eliminates
the connector as a supplier for a switch and allows it to be probed.
