(BTW, your message that I'm replying to wasn't word-wrapped correctly)

No, i2c-mux-pinctrl shouldn't need to change. It sounds like tegra-drm
isn't supporting deferred probe correctly; when it needs access to an
I2C adapter that doesn't exist, it should defer its own probe until the
I2C adapter does exist.
