Subject: [PATCH 3/4] ACPI 2.0 / ECDT: Enable correct ECDT initialization order

With wrong ECDT fixes reverted, it is possible to put ECDT probing before
acpi_enable_subsystem().

But the ultimate purpose of ECDT re-enabling is to put the ECDT probing
before the namespace initialization (acpi_load_tables()). This patch
achieves this with protections so that we can enable it later when all
necessary corrections are upstreamed.
