SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/3] GHES: Move memory initialisation to ghes_probe()

I know. This whole APEI init code would need a proper cleanup, like
acpi_pci_root_init() calls acpi_hest_init() and it shouldn't have to
communicate through a variable with GHES whether to init or not but it
should initialize GHES itself. And ghes_init() being a device_initcall()
is just yuck.

Something for the todo list I guess...

Right, and then depending on the setting of hest_disable, either issue
the "HEST is not enabled" message or not.
