USB: Export if an interface driver supports autosuspend.
Create a new sysfs file per interface named supports_autosuspend. This file returns true if an interface driver's .supports_autosuspend flag is set. It also returns true if the interface is unclaimed (since the USB core will autosuspend a device if an interface is not claimed). This new sysfs file will be useful for user space scripts to test whether a USB device correctly auto-suspends.

+ When read, this file returns 1 if the interface driver
+ for this interface supports autosuspend. It also
+ returns 1 if no driver has claimed this interface, as an
+ unclaimed interface will not stop the device from being
+ autosuspended if all other interface drivers are idle.
+ The file returns 0 if autosuspend support has not been
+ added to the driver.
