This doesn't look correct to me at all. Have you tested it in the DT
and !DT case? By the looks of it arizona_of_get_core_pdata() is only
called if no platform data is present. Yet you are dereferencing it
here without allocated any memory.

So how were any platform data passed variables being overwritten in
the first place?
