I'm not convinced we want to be encouraging anyone to be using
subsys_initcall() for SPI drivers in the first place - my guess would be
that with deferred probing none of that is needed anyway and the driver
could just use module_spi_driver(). Certainly if the drivers do
actually need subsys_initcall() I'd like to understand why before going
forward with something like this, and ideally we'd be able to remove the
need.
