Just a drive-by comment, didn't look to closely at this patch, but this
all sounds familiar.

Note that if both platform devices are bound to drivers you may end up
with some resources like pinctrl which are handled automatically by
driver core at probe time to be requested twice (and failing the second

Take a look at 4e75e1d7dac9 ("driver core: add helper to reuse a
device-tree node"), which provides a means to avoid this, and
49484abd93ab ("USB: musb: dsps: propagate device-tree node").
