During early boot, the kernel performs ACPI enumeration in which host
bridges are discovered (subsys_initcall(acpi_pci_root_init)).  Later
drivers, both built-in and modules such as the "ACPI PCI Slot Detection
Driver ("pci_slot")", are loaded (module_init(acpi_pci_slot_init)) thus we
end up with the following call chain:
    list_for_each_entry(..., acpi_pci_drivers, ...)
      driver->add(root)		# always no-op; list empty
  acpi_pci_slot_init		# module_init
      list_for_each_entry(..., &acpi_pci_roots, ...)
        driver->add(root)	# acpi_pci_slot_add()

Note that for host bridges present at boot time the 'acpi_pci_drivers'
list is always empty when acpi_pci_root_start() runs.

However, during a Host Bridge hot-add event, the "pci_slot" sub-driver is
already on the 'acpi_pci_drivers' list and we end up calling
acpi_pci_slot_add() before pci_bus_add_devices() and encounter the
following refcount WARNING:
  calling acpi_pci_slot_add():
  pci_bus 0000:03: dev 00, created physical slot 1
  ------------[ cut here ]------------

This patch fixes this latent issue by moving up pci_bus_add_devices() so
that the refcount will be initialized before subsequent references, via
driver additions from the 'acpi_pci_drivers' list, occur.
