modules: extend initcall_debug functionality to the module loader
The kernel has this really nice facility where if you put "initcall_debug" on the kernel commandline, it'll print which function it's going to execute just before calling an initcall, and then after the call completes it will 1) print if it had an error code 2) checks for a few simple bugs (like leaving irqs off) and 3) print how long the init call took in milliseconds. While trying to optimize the boot speed of my laptop, I have been loving number 3 to figure out what to optimize... ... and then I wished that the same thing was done for module loading. This patch makes the module loader use this exact same functionality; it's a logical extension in my view (since modules are just sort of late binding initcalls anyway) and so far I've found it quite useful in finding where things are too slow in my boot.
