Observed problems after the patch:

 - cannot reset board from u-boot
   - the sysreset walk function does not find any sysreset uclass device
     and halts
 - the pmic is no longer probed
   - the PMIC:  RK808 message (with a trailing space) is no longer
     printed during u-boot startup
 - linux locks up during boot
   - there is some complaint about fan53555 regulators which is no longer
     printed during boot

I tried to not error out when the sysreset bind fails, and not bind it
to DT node (device_bind_driver_to_node -> device_bind_driver) but it does
not make any difference.

I do not use the later part with staying off after plug-in which is not
needed on this board so I don't really understand what's the difference.
