[PATCH v5 5/5] simplefb: Change simplefb_init from module_init to fs_initcall

One of the reasons for having the simplefb nodes in /chosen, and doing
explicit enumeration of the nodes there, is too allow enumerating them sooner,
so that we get a console earlier on.

Doing this earlier then fs_initcall is not useful, since the fb only turns
into a console when fbcon intializes, which is a fs_initcall too.

Changes in v4 (of the patch-set):
-Drop the comment about using fs_initcall vs module_exit, as we no longer have
 a module_exit
