Subject: [PATCH] media: ov2680: register the v4l2 subdev async at the end of probe

The driver registers the subdev async in the middle of the probe function
but this has to be done at the very end of the probe function to prevent
registering a device whose probe function could fail (i.e: the clock and
regulators enable can fail, the I2C transfers could return errors, etc).

It could also lead to a media device driver that is waiting to bound the
v4l2 subdevice to incorrectly expose its media device to userspace, since
the subdev is registered but later its media entity is cleaned up on error.

Fixes: 3ee47cad3e69 ("media: ov2680: Add Omnivision OV2680 sensor driver")
