Subject: [PATCH v7 2/4] soc: mediatek: Init MT8173 scpsys driver earlier

Some power domain comsumers may init before module_init.
So the power domain provider (scpsys) need to be initialized
earlier too.

Take an example for our IOMMU (M4U) and SMI. SMI is a bridge
between IOMMU and multimedia HW. SMI is responsible to
enable/disable iommu and help transfer data for each multimedia
HW. Both of them have to wait until the power and clocks are

So scpsys driver should be initialized before SMI, and SMI should
be initialized before IOMMU, and then init IOMMU consumers
(display/vdec/venc/camera etc.).

IOMMU is subsys_init by default. So we need to init scpsys driver
before subsys_init.
