Subject: [PATCH net-next v2 06/10] device: add device_change_owner()

Add a helper to change the owner of a device's sysfs entries. This
needs to happen when the ownership of a device is changed, e.g. when
moving network devices between network namespaces.
The ownership of a device is determined based on the ownership of
the corresponding kobject, i.e. only if the ownership of a kobject is
changed will this function change the ownership of the corresponding
device's sysfs entries.
This function will be used to correctly account for ownership changes,
e.g. when moving network devices between network namespaces.
