Define the new SNDRV_DEV_CARD that is used for managing the top-level
card (chip) object.  So far, we used SNDRV_DEV_LOWLEVEL for this
purpose, but it doesn't fit properly; the "lowlevel" doesn't match
with the object it's assigned (where the card/chip object is rather a
top-level one).  And since the device register/free order will be more
strictly ordered in the later patch, we should place this object in
the right order position.

This patch alone just adds SNDRV_DEV_CARD as equivalent as
SNDRV_DEV_LOWLEVEL.  In the later patch, the value will be adjusted
appropriately.
