The device has a particularity, its VID/PID is 0000:1000 (as you can see
above). This value is weird. The risk of collision with another device is

So, maybe the device should be probed only if it appears in the DT. Since
WF200 targets embedded platforms, I don't think it is a problem to rely on
DT. You will find another FIXME further in the code about that:

+               dev_warn(&func->dev,
+                        "device is not declared in DT, features will be limited\n");
+               // FIXME: ignore VID/PID and only rely on device tree
+               // return -ENODEV;

However, it wouldn't be usual way to manage SDIO devices (and it is the
reason why the code is commented out).

Anyway, if we choose to rely on the DT, should we also check the VID/PID?

Personally, I am in favor to probe the device only if VID/PID match and if
a DT node is found, even if it is not the usual way.
