Subject: [PATCH v5 13/14] platform/x86: wmi: create character devices when requested by drivers

For WMI operations that are only Set or Query read or write sysfs
attributes created by WMI vendor drivers make sense.

For other WMI operations that are run on Method, there needs to be a
way to guarantee to userspace that the results from the method call
belong to the data request to the method call.  Sysfs attributes don't
work well in this scenario because two userspace processes may be
competing at reading/writing an attribute and step on each other's
data.

When a WMI vendor driver declares an ioctl callback in the wmi_driver
the WMI bus driver will create a character device that maps to that
function.

That character device will correspond to this path:
/dev/wmi/$driver

The WMI bus driver will interpret the IOCTL calls, test them for
a valid instance and pass them on to the vendor driver to run.

This creates an implicit policy that only driver per character
device.  If a module matches multiple GUID's, the wmi_devices
will need to be all handled by the same wmi_driver if the same
character device is used.

The WMI vendor drivers will be responsible for managing access to
this character device and proper locking on it.

When a WMI vendor driver is unloaded the WMI bus driver will clean
up the character device.
