I agree with this. There are also some use cases where the device data is actually static (eg, a generic description of the device or a reference to some other shared resource rather than per device allocated data).

From a technical perspective, there is little rationale to have the client data pointed to static data. If you could reach it from probe(), it has to be a global, and if it is a global, you can reach it again directly from the rest of your code.

The use case I can think of there is bus type specific stuff for devices that support multiple buses.
