Deferred probes are currently only re-executed if new drivers are successfully
registered and probed.  Drivers which defer their probes based on things like
missing firmware located on rootfs will sometimes only be re-probed if kernel
modules are found.  Unfortunately, this is fragile and can not be guaranteed
or relied upon.  This call allows us to trigger probe re-execution at any
point during boot.  For instance after rootfs is mounted in order to collect
firmwares in rootfs.
