     ALSA: hda - Move one-time init codes from generic_hdmi_init()

I'm investigating a kernel panic under kernel 3.5, and I'm not 100% sure 
(still waiting for person with hw to report back), but the only 
reasonable explanation I can find is that there is some power management 
activity going while the repoll timer (for hdmi_present_sense) is 
running, and that generic_hdmi_init reinitializes the delayed_work 
struct, thus causing the panic when the timer has elapsed.
