This doesn't prevent building as a module - when built as a module
subsys_initcall() is identical to module_init(), the change will only
affect the order in which things are done when the code is built into
the kernel otherwise it's a noop.

Yes, we probably do need to do the same thing for all embedded SPI
controllers (as has already happened with embedded I2C controllers),
though it's less pressing since outside of a few CPUs it's much less
common for things like PMICs to be on SPI than I2C.
