Same problem here, except with the rt2x00 driver. I changed it to
subsys_initcall(rate_control_simple_init), which also worked. I also
found that without this change, it was failing at this point in
ieee80211_rate.c:

ieee80211_try_rate_control_ops_get(const char *name)
{
        struct rate_control_alg *alg;
        struct rate_control_ops *ops = NULL;

        mutex_lock(&rate_ctrl_mutex);
        list_for_each_entry(alg, &rate_ctrl_algs, list) {   <===== Here
                if (!name || !strcmp(alg->ops->name, name))
                        if (try_module_get(alg->ops->module)) {
                                ops = alg->ops;
                                break;
                        }
