From: Mathieu Poirier <mathieu.poirier@linaro.org>

This patch adds a driver that models itself as an stm_source and
who's sole purpose is to export an interface to the rest of the
kernel.  Once the stm and stm_source have been linked via sysfs,
everything that is passed to the interface will endup in the STM
trace engine.
