The serdev bus is designed for devices such as Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS
and NFC connected to UARTs on host processors. Tradionally these have
been handled with tty line disciplines, rfkill, and userspace glue such
as hciattach. This approach has many drawbacks since it doesn't fit
into the Linux driver model. Handling of sideband signals, power control
and firmware loading are the main issues.

This creates a serdev bus with controllers (i.e. host serial ports) and
attached devices. Typically, these are point to point connections, but
some devices have muxing protocols or a h/w mux is conceivable. Any
muxing is not yet supported with the serdev bus.

v2:
- Change the sysfs visible names to "serial". Kept serdev as kernel
  internal name.
- Make function ptr checks and calls follow a consistent structure
- Return error if controller .open() is missing
- Sort includes
- Add an ACPI TODO note
- Fix serdev_controller_add error path handling
- Fix DT child device adding error handling
- Add modalias sysfs attr and uevent hook
- Fix module email address

This prevents from building serdev as a module with following errors:
   ERROR: "of_device_uevent_modalias" [drivers/tty/serdev/serdev.ko] 
undefined!
   ERROR: "of_device_get_modalias" [drivers/tty/serdev/serdev.ko] undefined!

Currently, those symbols are not exported in drivers/of/device.c

Turns out, there's a fix already[1] that should be going in via Greg's tree.
