To clarify, you had the timer issue only with my "combine drivers" patch, right?

My guess is that the probe attempt of blk-ctrl is delayed now till gpc
probes (because of the device links getting created with the
fwnode_dev_initialized() fix), but by the time gpc probe finishes, the
power domains aren't registered yet because of the additional level of
device addition and probing.

Can you try the attached patch please?

And if that doesn't fix the issues, then enable the debug logs in the
following functions please and share the logs from boot till the
failure? If you can enable CONFIG_PRINTK_CALLER, that'd help too.
device_link_add()
fwnode_link_add()
fw_devlink_relax_cycle()

Btw, part of the reason I'm trying to make sure we fix it the right
way is that when we try to enable async boot by default, we don't run
into issues.

Thanks,
Saravana
