[lm-sensors] [patch 2.6.most] hwmon should subsys_init

Subsystem infrastructure should normally register with "subsys_initcall",
so that it's available to drivers that may need to initialize early.

This patch updates "hwmon" to do so.  It's common for embedded systems to
have multifunction chips with hardware monitoring interfaces, and to have
those chips be used during system bringup ... before a normal "module_init"
would kick, or maybe just linked so they'd init before hwmon.
