Subject: [RFC] kobject: add kobject_init_ng, kobject_add_ng, and
	kobject_init_and_add functions

This is what the kobject_init function is going to become.  Add it to
the kernel and then we can convert over the current kobject_init() users
before renaming it.

Also add a kobject_init_and_add function which bundles up what a lot of
the current callers want to do all at once, and it properly handles the
memory usages, unlike kobject_register();
