Add device-links after the devices are created (but before they are
probed) by looking at common DT bindings like clocks and
interconnects.

Automatically adding device-links for functional dependencies at the
framework level provides the following benefits:

- Optimizes device probe order and avoids the useless work of
  attempting probes of devices that will not probe successfully
  (because their suppliers aren't present or haven't probed yet).

  For example, in a commonly available mobile SoC, registering just
  one consumer device's driver at an initcall level earlier than the
  supplier device's driver causes 11 failed probe attempts before the
  consumer device probes successfully. This was with a kernel with all
  the drivers statically compiled in. This problem gets a lot worse if
  all the drivers are loaded as modules without direct symbol
  dependencies.

- Supplier devices like clock providers, interconnect providers, etc
  need to keep the resources they provide active and at a particular
  state(s) during boot up even if their current set of consumers don't
  request the resource to be active. This is because the rest of the
  consumers might not have probed yet and turning off the resource
  before all the consumers have probed could lead to a hang or
  undesired user experience.

  Some frameworks (Eg: regulator) handle this today by turning off
  "unused" resources at late_initcall_sync and hoping all the devices
  have probed by then. This is not a valid assumption for systems with
  loadable modules. Other frameworks (Eg: clock) just don't handle
  this due to the lack of a clear signal for when they can turn off
  resources. This leads to downstream hacks to handle cases like this
  that can easily be solved in the upstream kernel.

  By linking devices before they are probed, we give suppliers a clear
  count of the number of dependent consumers. Once all of the
  consumers are active, the suppliers can turn off the unused
  resources without making assumptions about the number of consumers.

By default we just add device-links to track "driver presence" (probe
succeeded) of the supplier device. If any other functionality provided
by device-links are needed, it is left to the consumer/supplier
devices to change the link when they probe.

The structure now looks a lot better to me. A few minor things below.

I like 'i' for for loops, but less so for function params. Perhaps
'index' instead like of_parse_phandle_with_args.

Why the '!i' test?

Using 'i' is a little odd. Perhaps a 'matched' bool would be easier to read.

Just return here. No point in continuing as 'done' is never set back to true.

To avoid a string comparison for every index. It's kinda wasteful once
the first index passes.

That's how I wrote it first (locally) and then redid it this way
because the bool felt very superfluous. I don't think this is that
hard to understand.

Actually, there is a point for this. Say Device-C depends on suppliers
Device-S1 and Device-S2 and they are listed in DT in that order.

Say, S1 gets populated after late_initcall_sync but S2 is probes way
before that. If I don't continue past a "failed linking" to S1 and
also link up to S2, then S2 will get a sync_state() callback before C
is probed. So I have to go through all possible suppliers and as many
as possible.

Let me add a comment about this somewhere in the code (probably the
header that defines the add_links() ops).

That's not very obvious and pretty fragile though this is a static
function. Perhaps we should split to match() and parse() functions. At
least put a comment here as to what we're doing.

Yeah, I did think about doing this. That's why I made it a struct for
supplier_bindings instead of just an array of function pointers. But
having a parse function just for a strcmp() was creating a lot of code
noise. So went ahead and did it this way. We can keep it this way and
if we later see the need for a separate parse function, it should be
easy to do so (because it's already a struct for each binding).

I like the name "matched" over "found" that I had used locally. So, I
actually went ahead and did this.
