Add new netlink events helpers tcmu_netlink_event_init() and
tcmu_netlink_event_send(). These new functions intend to replace
exsiting netlink events helper function tcmu_netlink_event().

The exsiting function tcmu_netlink_event() works well for events
like TCMU_ADDED_DEVICE and TCMU_REMOVED_DEVICE which only has one
netlink attribute. But if there is a command requires more than
one attributes to send out, we have to use a struct to adapt the
paremeter reconfig_data, it is hard to use one struct or a union
in one struct to adapt every command with different attributes,
it may get long and ugly.

With the new two functions, we can call tcmu_netlink_event_init()
to initialize a netlink event, then add all attributes we need by
using nla_put_xxx(), at last use tcmu_netlink_event_send() to
send it out. So that we don't need to use a long struct or union
if we want to send mulitple attributes for different commands.

Changes in V2:
  - Add new blank lines for better code style, easier to
    scan the chunks
