right.
both acpi_init() and pnp_init() are subsys_initcall, but pnp_init() is
invoked later because of the link order.

well, I'm not sure, here is what I get from drivers/Makefile
obj-$(CONFIG_ACPI)              += acpi/
obj-$(CONFIG_SFI)               += sfi/
# PnP must come after ACPI since it will eventually need to check ifacpi
# was used and do nothing if so
obj-$(CONFIG_PNP)               += pnp/

this comment was added long time ago and I do not know the background of
it, maybe Len knows the reason of this?
