This patch is inspired from patch:

    arm: Remove unnecessary of_platform_populate with default match table

    After patch "of/platform: Add common method to populate default bus",
    it is possible for arch code to remove unnecessary callers of
    of_platform_populate with default match table.

This has been boot tested on 6Q-SDB/6UL-EVK/6SL-EVK board.
For i.MX, I only see pinctrl driver use arch_initcall from the link,
https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/latest/ident/arch_initcall

From my boot test, the pinctrl driver probe will be delayed a bit, but I do
not see issues.

The common code is introduced by this patch, one thing need to consider
is the of_iommu_init and swiotlb_late_init on aarch64. My patch
is only for i.MX6/7, so I think there is no such issue.

    of/platform: Add common method to populate default bus

    The arch code calls of_platform_populate() with default match table
    when it wants to populate default bus.

    This patch introduce a new of_platform_default_populate_init() and make it
    arch_initcall_sync(it should be later than some iommu configration, eg,
    of_iommu_init() and swiotlb_late_init in arm64), then we can finish above
    job in common method.

    In order to avoid the default bus being populated twice, simply checking
    the flag of bus node whether has be set OF_POPULATED_BUS or not.

    After that, we can safely remove the caller in arch code.

    Btw, add debug print in of_platform_populate(), and use __func__ to
    print function's name of of_platform_bus_create().


Thanks,
Peng.
