OTOH the moment they change the initcall sequence we would
have to change our machine vector interfaces.  And AFAICT no
one is happy with the 7 levels of init (everything from too
granular to not granular enough).

I'm inclined to move the direction that Tony suggests:

I think this seems a lot more sane than what I suggested.

I'll code something up and try to see if I can dig up a PPC
system to test on as well.
