That applies to huge numbers of systems - you should still just use
regular init ordering in mainline, there are efforts to make things
better there (look at Viresh's dependency stuff) so hopefully things
will improve in the future and in the meantime the cost of probe
deferral isn't *that* great and it's less fiddly than tweaking ordering.
Practically speaking init ordering stuff can always be added in vendor
kernels in the meantime.
