[PATCH 00/15] Replace module_init with device_initcall in non modules

This series of commits converts non-modular code that is using
the module_init() call to hook itself into the system to instead
use device_initcall().

The conversion is a runtime no-op, since module_init actually
becomes __initcall in the non-modular case, and that in turn gets
mapped onto device_initcall.

We fix this up now, so that we can relocate module_init from
init.h into module.h in a future series.

The files changed here are just limited to those that would
otherwise have to add module.h to obviously non-modular code, since
we don't want to do that.

This work is factored out from what was a previously larger series[1] so
that there is a common theme and lower patch count to ease review.
