It looks to me as if it could suffice to call (or inline the code)


in wl1251_sdio_probe() [1] on success.

So I wonder if other SDIO based boards don't have the same issue
of missing identification. In that case it would not only be Pandora

If we can do that, we just have to make the pdata driver being loaded
by DT...

Maybe adding a compatibility table to drivers/net/wireless/ti/wl1251/sdio.c
could do the magic. But the way the wl187x sdio subnode is handled could
show the right solution.
