Subject[PATCH] acpi: Initialize the batter driver asynchronous

Subject: [PATCH] acpi: Initialize the batter driver asynchronous

The battery driver tends to take quite some time to initialize (100ms-300ms
is quite typical).
This patch initializes the batter driver asynchronously, so that other
things in the kernel can initialize in parallel to this 300 msec.

As part of this, the batter driver had to move to the back of the acpi init
order (hence the Makefile change). Without this move, the next ACPI driver
would just block on the ACPI/devicee layer semaphores until the battery driver was
done anyway, not gaining any boot time.
