Subject: [PATCH v2 1/9] drivers: base: add new class "cpu" to group cpu devices

From: Sudeep Holla <sudeep.holla@....com>

This patch creates a new class called "cpu" and assigns it to all the
cpu devices. This helps in grouping all the cpu devices and associated
child devices under the same class.

This patch also:
1. modifies the get_parent_device to return the legacy path
   (/sys/devices/system/cpu/..) for the cpu class devices to support
   existing sysfs ABI
2. avoids creating link in the class directory pointing to the device as
   there would be per-cpu instance of these devices with the same name
3. makes sure subsystem symlink continues pointing to cpu bus instead of
   cpu class for cpu devices
