Subject: [PATCH] fastboot: hold the BKL over the async init call sequence

Regular init calls are called with the BKL held; make sure
the async init calls are also called with the BKL held.
While this reduces parallelism a little, it does provide
lock-for-lock compatibility. The hit to prallelism isn't too
bad, most of the init calls are done immediately or actually
block for their delays.
