[PATCH] reset: socfpga: use arch_initcall for early initialization

From: dinguyen
Date: Wed Oct 08 2014 - 23:03:38 EST

From: Dinh Nguyen <dinguyen@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

There are certain drivers that are required to get loaded very early using
arch_initcall. An example of such a driver is the SOCFPGA's FPGA bridge driver.
This driver has to get loaded early because it needs to enable FPGA components
that are connected to the bridge.

This FPGA bridge driver will using the reset controller API to toggle it's
reset bits, thus, it needs the reset driver to be loaded as early as possible
in order for it to get used properly.
