[PATCH v7 12/13] ACPI / init: Invoke early ACPI initialization earlier

From: Dou Liyang
Date: Fri Jul 14 2017 - 01:54:53 EST

Linux uses acpi_early_init() to put the ACPI table management into
the late stage from the early stage where the mapped ACPI tables is
temporary and should be unmapped.

But, now initializing interrupt delivery mode should map and parse the
DMAR table earlier in the early stage. This causes an ACPI error when
Linux reallocates the ACPI root tables. Because Linux doesn't unmapped
the DMAR table after using in the early stage.

Invoke acpi_early_init() earlier before late_time_init(), Keep the DMAR
be mapped and parsed in late stage like before.
