Revert "base: dd: don't remove driver_data in -EPROBE_DEFER case"
This reverts commit ded9db38. Thierry Reding writes: This causes a boot regression on at least one board, caused by one of the drivers looking at driver data to check whether or not the driver has properly loaded. If the code encounters a non-NULL pointer it tries to dereference it, but because it's already been freed there is no memory backing it and things crash. I don't think keeping stale pointers around is a good idea. The whole point of setting this to NULL in the core is so that probe failures result in the same starting conditions no matter what. Can we please get this reverted? Reported-by: Thierry Reding <email@example.com> Cc: Yi Zhang <firstname.lastname@example.org> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <email@example.com>
