driver core: Partially revert "driver core: correct device's shutdown order"
commit 722e5f2b upstream. Commit 52cdbdd4 (driver core: correct device's shutdown order) introduced a regression by breaking device shutdown on some systems. Namely, the devices_kset_move_last() call in really_probe() added by that commit is a mistake as it may cause parents to follow children in the devices_kset list which then causes shutdown to fail. For example, if a device has children before really_probe() is called for it (which is not uncommon), that call will cause it to be reordered after the children in the devices_kset list and the ordering of that list will not reflect the correct device shutdown order any more. Also it causes the devices_kset list to be constantly reordered until all drivers have been probed which is totally pointless overhead in the majority of cases and it only covered an issue with system shutdown, while system-wide suspend/resume potentially had the same issue on the affected platforms (which was not covered). Moreover, the shutdown issue originally addressed by the change in really_probe() made by commit 52cdbdd4 is not present in 4.18-rc any more, since dra7 started to use the sdhci-omap driver which doesn't disable any regulators during shutdown, so the really_probe() part of commit 52cdbdd4 can be safely reverted. [The original issue was related to the omap_hsmmc driver used by dra7 previously.] For the above reasons, revert the really_probe() modifications made by commit 52cdbdd4. The other code changes made by commit 52cdbdd4 are useful and they need not be reverted.
