driver core: Introduce device_move(): move a device to a new parent.
Provide a function device_move() to move a device to a new parent device. Add auxilliary functions kobject_move() and sysfs_move_dir(). kobject_move() generates a new uevent of type KOBJ_MOVE, containing the previous path (DEVPATH_OLD) in addition to the usual values. For this, a new interface kobject_uevent_env() is created that allows to add further environmental data to the uevent at the kobject layer.
