This is series #2 in part of a larger work that arose from the minor
remark that the mdev_parent_ops indirection shim is useless and
complicates things.

It follows the "Embed struct vfio_device in all sub-structures" already
sent, and must be applied on top of it.

A preview of the future series's is here:

This series:

vfio_mdev has a number of different objects: mdev_parent, mdev_type and

Unfortunately the types of these have been erased in various places
throughout the API, and this makes it very hard to understand this code or
maintain it by the time it reaches all of the drivers.

This series puts in all the types and aligns some of the design with the
driver core standard for a driver core bus driver:

 - Replace 'struct device *' with 'struct mdev_device *
 - Replace 'struct device *' with 'struct mdev_type *' and
 - Replace 'struct kobject *' with 'struct mdev_type *'

Now that types are clear it is easy to spot a few places that have
duplicated information.

More significantly we can now understand how to directly fix the
obfuscated 'kobj->name' matching by realizing the the kobj is a mdev_type,
which is linked to the supported_types_list provided by the driver, and
thus the core code can directly return the array indexes all the drivers
actually want.
