[PATCH 16/16] phy: phy-core: fix initcall level

From: Alexander Holler
Date: Wed Aug 26 2015 - 08:32:03 EST

The phy-core has to be initialized before other dependent usb-drivers,
otherwise a crash might occur.

Currently phy_core_init() is called in the initcall-level device, which is
the same level where most usb-drivers will end up. By luck this seemed to
have been called most of the time before other usb-drivers without having
been explicitly enforced. But if phy_core_init() is not called before a
dependent driver, a null-pointer exception might occur (e.g. because the
phy device class isn't registered).

To fix this, phy_core_init() is moved to the initcall-level fs (right
before the standard initcall level device).
