PM / Runtime: Add sysfs switch for disabling device run-time PM

Add new device sysfs attribute, power/control, allowing the user
space to block the run-time power management of the devices.  If this
attribute is set to "on", the driver of the device won't be able to power
manage it at run time (without breaking the rules) and the device will
always be in the full power state (except when the entire system goes
into a sleep state).

* control - Report/change current runtime PM setting of the device
* Runtime power management of a device can be blocked with the help of
* this attribute. All devices have one of the following two values for
* the power/control file:
* + "auto\n" to allow the device to be power managed at run time;
* + "on\n" to prevent the device from being power managed at run time;
* The default for all devices is "auto", which means that devices may be
* subject to automatic power management, depending on their drivers.
* Changing this attribute to "on" prevents the driver from power managing
* the device at run time. Doing that while the device is suspended causes
* it to be woken up.
* wakeup - Report/change current wakeup option for device
* Some devices support "wakeup" events, which are hardware signals
