I tried doing this and the kernel would refuse to boot. I believe it has
something to do with the ordering of early_init subsystems, but I'm not
entirely sure (this optimisation can be dealt with later [it's non-critical],
so IMO this should be done in a separate patchset [if at all]). Also, your
later comments would fix the subsys bitmask problem (we can just pass the
default %NULL), we don't even need to test the index.
