Driver core: fix deprectated sysfs structure for nested class devices
Nested class devices used to have 'device' symlink point to a real (physical) device instead of a parent class device. When converting subsystems to struct device we need to keep doing what class devices did if CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED is Y, otherwise parts of udev break.
