[PATCH 2/2] soc: samsung: exynos-chipid: initialize later - with arch_initcall

The Exynos ChipID driver on Exynos SoCs has only informational
purpose - to expose the SoC device in sysfs.  No other drivers
depend on it so there is really no benefit of initializing it early.

Instead, initialize everything with arch_initcall which:
1. Allows to use dev_info() as the SoC bus is present (since
2. Could speed things up because of execution in a SMP environment
   (after bringing up secondary CPUs, unlike early_initcall),
3. Reduces the amount of work to be done early, when the kernel has to
   bring up critical devices.
