The initialisation function which calls platform_device_register() is 
only executed during a DT boot. The clue is in the title 
mop500_of_msp_init(). The DT is populated _before_ this patch, but I 
guess you mean if they are separated into subsystem trees and are placed 
into -next/Mainline out of order.

I will merge these patches with the DT population instead to overcome 
this possibility. It makes more sense to keep the arch/arm stuff 
together in any case.
