Subject[PATCH 06/73] x86: don't use module_init for non-modular core bootflag code
The bootflag.o is obj-y (always built in).  It will never be
modular, so using module_init as an alias for __initcall is
somewhat misleading.

Fix this up now, so that we can relocate module_init from
init.h into module.h in the future. If we don't do this, we'd
have to add module.h to obviously non-modular code, and that
would be a worse thing.

Note that direct use of __initcall is discouraged, vs. one
of the priority categorized subgroups. As __initcall gets
mapped onto device_initcall, our use of arch_initcall (which
makes sense for arch code) will thus change this registration
from level 6-device to level 3-arch (i.e. slightly earlier).
However no observable impact of that small difference has
been observed during testing, or is expected.
