I guess this is circular dependency issue:

- adv waits for dsi-host, then it creates drm_bridge,

- dsi-driver waits for drm_bridge, then it creates dsi host.

The patch introduces proper order:

- 1st we should register devices buses,

- then we should wait for drm components.

So the best solution would be to fix f4107800.dsi driver - it shouldn't
look for drm_bridge in probe, instead it should register dsi_host, and
in dsi host attach callback look for drm_bridge, then call component_add
(if all required resources are gathered), see
dw_mipi_dsi_rockchip_host_attach for example.
