kobject: add kobject_add_ng function
This is what the kobject_add function is going to become. Add this to the kernel and then we can convert the tree over to use it. Cc: Kay Sievers <kay.sievers@vrfy.org> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de>

+ *
+ * The kobject name is set and added to the kobject hierarchy in this
+ * function.
+ *
+ * If @parent is set, then the parent of the @kobj will be set to it.
+ * If @parent is NULL, then the parent of the @kobj will be set to the
+ * kobject associted with the kset assigned to this kobject. If no kset
+ * is assigned to the kobject, then the kobject will be located in the
+ * root of the sysfs tree.
+ *
+ * If this function returns an error, kobject_put() must be called to
+ * properly clean up the memory associated with the object.
+ *
+ * If the function is successful, the only way to properly clean up the
+ * memory is with a call to kobject_del(), in which case, a call to
+ * kobject_put() is not necessary (kobject_del() does the final
+ * kobject_put() to call the release function in the ktype's release
+ * pointer.)
+ *
+ * Under no instance should the kobject that is passed to this function
+ * be directly freed with a call to kfree(), that can leak memory.
+ *
+ * Note, no uevent will be created with this call, the caller should set
+ * up all of the necessary sysfs files for the object and then call
+ * kobject_uevent() with the UEVENT_ADD parameter to ensure that
+ * userspace is properly notified of this kobject's creation.
