Subject: Re: [PATCH V5] scsi: ufshcd: Fix device links when BOOT WLUN fails to probe

Adrian,

> Managed device links are deleted by device_del(). However it is
> possible to add a device link to a consumer before device_add(), and
> then discovering an error prevents the device from being used. In that

> supplier is deleted).

Applied to 5.15/scsi-staging, thanks!
