asus-laptop: Do not call HWRS on init
commit cb7da022450cdaaebd33078b6b32fb7dd2aaf6db upstream. Since commit 8871e99f89b7 ('asus-laptop: HRWS/HWRS typo'), module initialisation is very slow on the Asus UL30A. The HWRS method takes about 12 seconds to run, and subsequent initialisation also seems to be delayed. Since we don't really need the result, don't bother calling it on init. Those who are curious can still get the result through the 'infos' device attribute. Update the comment about HWRS in show_infos().
