Subject: [PATCH 0/2] net: wireless: rtw88: Fix oops on probe errors


This mini-series fixes oopses in rtw88 device probe error handling,
resulting from asynchronous firmware loading.

Since there does not appear to be a public kernel API for canceling
scheduled or ongoing firmware loads, it seems we need to wait with
teardown until rtw88's callback was invoked and signals completion.

Found on RTD1296 arm64 SoC with experimental PCI host bridge driver
( with a 4K
physical bar window, resulting in rtw_pci_setup_resource() failing,
or with non-implemented 4K remapping resulting in rtw_pci_read32()
returning 0xffffffff values and causing rtw_mac_power_on() to fail.
