The majority is likely wrong, we don't vote about what is the
best code quality luckily :D

You do not see a lot of device_initicall because in the majority
of cases these come implicitly from module_platform_driver(),
builtin_platform_driver_probe() or builtin_platform_driver()
see include/linux/platform_device.h

I think you can make it into module_platform_driver() please
try that approach.
