nubus_bus_register() two things:

  1. Register the NuBus parent device, which represents the bus host,
  2. Register the NuBus bus, which represents the bus type.

I think this should be split in two, and only the latter should be done
regardless of the presence of NuBus host hardware, to fix the crash.

Hence you should still register the NuBus parent device here.
