Subject: [PATCH v2 0/2] Account for uncorrectable failures in probing

Pali raised some concerns around corner case scenarios that probing
may fail on dell-wmi-descriptor causing dell-wmi and dell-smbios-wmi
to be stuck in infinite deferred probing loops.
This patch series accounts for that corner case.

changes from v1 to v2:
- Add Reviewed by from Pali for patch 1
- Move wmi_has_guid check into dell-wmi-descriptor.c instead of
  dependent drivers.
Mario Limonciello (2):
  platform/x86: dell-wmi-descriptor: check if memory was allocated
  platform/x86: dell-*wmi*: Relay failed initial probe to dependent
