Some subsystems need to carry out suspend/resume and shutdown
operations with one CPU on-line and interrupts disabled. The only
way to register such operations is to define a sysdev class and
a sysdev specifically for this purpose which is cumbersome and
inefficient. Moreover, the arguments taken by sysdev suspend,
resume and shutdown callbacks are practically never necessary.
For this reason, introduce a simpler interface allowing subsystems
to register operations to be executed very late during system suspend
and shutdown and very early during resume in the form of
strcut syscore_ops objects.
