It's the logicpd-torpedo-37xx-devkit.dts like I mentioned above,
and yes it has the same entry above like beagle xm.

Yes then the PHY driver won't get probed and modprobe of the
charger won't hang with -EPROBE_DEFER.. The USB is working on this
one like on beagle xm so that's not a solution.

Well status = "disabled" makes kernel completely ignore the
hardware, so the struct device is never created. I'd stay away from
using that in general for proper runtime idling of devices.. The
hardware is there for sure :)

Can you check if something like the the following allows you to
reproduce the hang of modprobe twl4030_charger:

# rmmod phy-twl4030-usb
# modprobe twl4030_charger

So just don't probe phy-twl4030-usb before twl4030_charger and
then modprobe of twl4030_charger hangs?

That is with proper usb2_phy configured in .dts file and not
set to status = "disabled".

Tony
