Instead of this, could we come up something like a percpu_sink concept ? That
way, the TRBE driver could register the percpu_sink for the corresponding CPU
and we don't have to worry about the order in which the ETE will be probed
on a hotplugged CPU. (i.e, if the TRBE is probed before the ETE, the following
approach would fail to register the sink).

And the default sink can be initialized when the ETE instance first starts
looking for it.
