Arjan? Clearly all the necessary fixes weren't found..

There _is_ a module loading problem wrt initmem - I think you found that
and we added a hack for it for the ACPI battery driver. I wonder if we're
hitting a similar issue now with module discovery: modules that use
"async_schedule()" to do their discovery asynchronously are now not
necessarily fully "done" when the module is loaded.

And so, anything that expected the devices to be available after module
load (like they used to) would be screwed.

IOW, maybe something like the totally untested patch appended here (that
should also allow us to make the ACPI battery code to go back to using
__init).

As usual, I'm not using modules, so what do I know.

Ok, probably something from Takashi..
