asus-laptop: add base driver

Adds the new driver and make ASUS_LAPTOP and ACPI_ASUS
incompatible.  It may be strange to use ASUS_CREATE_DEVICE_ATTR
and ASUS_SET_DEVICE_ATTR now, but these macro will be very
usefull in next patchs.  ASUS_HANDLE and ASUS_HANDLE_INIT comes
from IBM_HANDLE and IBM_HANDLE_INIT, with some modification,
and will also be used in next patchs.

This is the new Linux driver for Asus laptops. It may also support some
MEDION, JVC or VICTOR laptops. It makes all the extra buttons generate
standard ACPI events that go through /proc/acpi/events. It also adds
support for video output switching, LCD backlight control, Bluetooth and
Wlan control, and most importantly, allows you to blink those fancy LEDs.
For more information and a userspace daemon for handling the extra
buttons see <http://acpi4asus.sf.net/>.
