Please include the oops.
What is it about this patch that fixes the issue? Based on the
description I presume it has nothing to do with i915 internal ordering,
and everything to do with i915 and hdac probe racing. In that case, this
is not a fix, just something to make the race a bit less likely. Is that
We try hard to make sure our driver has properly been set up internally
before we go ahead and reveal ourselves to the userspace and the rest of
the kernel. This is the i915_driver_register() part. We aren't ready to
register the component ops before that. We aren't ready to handle calls
from audio drivers before that.
What's the problem you have exactly?
