This series adds support for the type cover of the Surface Pro 8. On the
Pro 8, the type cover is (unlike on previous generations) handled via
the Surface System Aggregator Module (SSAM). As the type cover is
detachable, care needs to be taken and the respective SSAM (HID) client
devices need to be properly removed when detached and re-initialized
when attached.

Therefore, this series does three things:

 1. Improve hot-removal support for SSAM client devices. When
    hot-removing clients, subsequent communication may time out.

    In the worst case, this can lead to problems when devices are
    detached and re-attached quickly, before we can remove their
    respective kernel representations. This can then lead to devices
    being in an uninitialized state, preventing, for example, touchpad
    gestures from working properly as the required HID feature report
    has not been sent.

    Therefore, handle hot-removal of devices more gracefully by avoiding
    communication once it has been detected and ensure that devices are
    actually removed.
 2. Generify SSAM subsystem hubs and add a KIP hub. On the Surface Pro
    8, the KIP subsystem (only that abbreviation is known) is
    responsible for managing type-cover devices. This hub acts as the
    controller for device removal similar to the BAS (detachable base)
    subsystem hub on the Surface Book 3 (therefore we can share most of
    the code between them).

 3. Add the (HID) type-cover clients of the Surface Pro 8 to the
    aggregator registry.
