Just looked at this patch and noticed that I should change the pinctrl 
state back to default if we can't get the gpio pins. I will submit a 
patch to fix this.

By 'all this' you mean to move the entire function in the core, right? 
Having just these two pointers bus_recinovery_info won't help much. I 
can try it, if you haven't already started...
