edac: rewrite the sysfs code to use struct device

The EDAC subsystem uses the old struct sysdev approach,
creating all nodes using the raw sysfs API. This is bad,
as the API is deprecated.

As we'll be changing the EDAC API, let's first port the existing
code to struct device.

There's one drawback on this patch: driver-specific sysfs
nodes, used by mpc85xx_edac, amd64_edac and i7core_edac
 won't be created anymore. While it would be possible to
also port the device-specific code, that would mix kobj with
struct device, with is not recommended. Also, it is easier and nicer
to move the code to the drivers, instead, as the core can get rid
of some complex logic that just emulates what the device_add()
and device_create_file() already does.

The next patches will convert the driver-specific code to use
the device-specific calls. Then, the remaining bits of the old
sysfs API will be removed.

NOTE: a per-MC bus is required, otherwise devices with more than
one memory controller will hit a bug like the one below:

This happens because the bus is not being properly initialized.
Instead of putting the memory sub-devices inside the memory controller,
it is putting everything under the same directory:

$ tree /sys/bus/edac/

On a multi-memory controller system, the names "csrow%d" and "dimm%d"
should be under "mc%d", and not at the main hierarchy level.

So, we need to create a per-MC bus, in order to have its own namespace.
