First you do something, then print it's done, and not other way around.

So, this patch has a bisectability issue. After it AFAIU some
platforms will not be able to enumerate the device.

To avoid such you have to reconsider logic behind this conversion, i.e.
1. Split the driver to core part and current initialization mechanism
2. Add platform driver as a separate module.
