Subject: [PATCH] drm/bridge: ti-sn65dsi86: Associate DSI device lifetime with auxiliary device

The kernel produces a warning splat and the DSI device fails to register
in this driver if the i2c driver probes, populates child auxiliary
devices, and then somewhere in ti_sn_bridge_probe() a function call
returns -EPROBE_DEFER. When the auxiliary driver probe defers, the dsi
device created by devm_mipi_dsi_device_register_full() is left
registered because the devm managed device used to manage the lifetime
of the DSI device is the parent i2c device, not the auxiliary device
that is being probed.

Associate the DSI device created and managed by this driver to the
lifetime of the auxiliary device, not the i2c device, so that the DSI
device is removed when the auxiliary driver unbinds. Similarly change
the device pointer used for dev_err_probe() so the deferred probe errors
are associated with the auxiliary device instead of the parent i2c
device so we can narrow down future problems faster.
