[PATCH] fsi: core: register with postcore_initcall

When testing an i2c driver that is a fsi bus driver, I saw the following

 kernel BUG at drivers/base/driver.c:153!
 Internal error: Oops - BUG: 0 [#1] ARM

This is because the fsi bus had not been registered. This fix registers the bus
with postcore_initcall instead, to ensure it is registered earlier on.

When the fsi core is used as a module this should not be a problem as the fsi
driver will depend on the fsi bus type symbol, and will therefore load the core
before the driver.
