V4L/DVB (7013): bw-qcam: add module parameter 'force_init' to skip polite auto-detection prior to direct initialization

Setting force_init=1 bypasses the friendly auto-detection by polling the
status register, and instead attempts to initialize the qcam directly.  Not
friendly to other parallel devices, but much more reliable than the
auto-detection.
