init / exit function ordering

The vlib init function subsystem now supports a mix of procedural and
formally-specified ordering constraints. We should eliminate procedural
knowledge wherever possible.

The following schemes are *roughly* equivalent:

static clib_error_t *init_runs_first (vlib_main_t *vm)
{
clib_error_t *error;

... do some stuff...

if ((error = vlib_call_init_function (init_runs_next)))
return error;
...
}
VLIB_INIT_FUNCTION (init_runs_first);

and

static clib_error_t *init_runs_first (vlib_main_t *vm)
{
... do some stuff...
}
VLIB_INIT_FUNCTION (init_runs_first) =
{
.runs_before = VLIB_INITS("init_runs_next"),
};

The first form will [most likely] call "init_runs_next" on the
spot. The second form means that "init_runs_first" runs before
"init_runs_next," possibly much earlier in the sequence.

Please DO NOT construct sets of init functions where A before B
actually means A *right before* B. It's not necessary - simply combine
A and B - and it leads to hugely annoying debugging exercises when
trying to switch from ad-hoc procedural ordering constraints to formal
ordering constraints.
