[PATCH] Driver core: add generic "subsystem" link to all devices
Like the SUBSYTEM= key we find in the environment of the uevent, this creates a generic "subsystem" link in sysfs for every device. Userspace usually doesn't care at all if its a "class" or a "bus" device. This provides an unified way to determine the subsytem of a device, regardless of the way the driver core has created it.
