[ Upstream commit 5ee76c256e928455212ab759c51d198fedbe7523 ]

Mounting NFS rootfs was timing out when deferred_probe_timeout was
non-zero [1].  This was because ip_auto_config() initcall times out
waiting for the network interfaces to show up when
deferred_probe_timeout was non-zero. While ip_auto_config() calls
wait_for_device_probe() to make sure any currently running deferred
probe work or asynchronous probe finishes, that wasn't sufficient to
account for devices being deferred until deferred_probe_timeout.

Commit 35a672363ab3 ("driver core: Ensure wait_for_device_probe() waits
until the deferred_probe_timeout fires") tried to fix that by making
sure wait_for_device_probe() waits for deferred_probe_timeout to expire
before returning.

However, if wait_for_device_probe() is called from the kernel_init()

- Before deferred_probe_initcall() [2], it causes the boot process to
  hang due to a deadlock.

- After deferred_probe_initcall() [3], it blocks kernel_init() from
  continuing till deferred_probe_timeout expires and beats the point of
  deferred_probe_timeout that's trying to wait for userspace to load

Neither of this is good. So revert the changes to
