Driver core fixes for 4.17-rc3

Here are some small driver core and firmware fixes for 4.17-rc3

There's a kobject WARN() removal to make syzkaller a lot happier about
some "normal" error paths that it keeps hitting, which should reduce the
number of false-positives we have been getting recently.

There's also some fimware test and documentation fixes, and the
coredump() function signature change that needed to happen after -rc1
before drivers started to take advantage of it.

All of these have been in linux-next with no reported issues.
