Subject[PATCH 30/31] driver/base: implement subsys_virtual_register()
Date
Kay tells me the most appropriate place to expose workqueues to
userland would be /sys/devices/virtual/workqueues/WQ_NAME which is
symlinked to /sys/bus/workqueue/devices/WQ_NAME and that we're lacking
a way to do that outside of driver core as virtual_device_parent()
isn't exported and there's no inteface to conveniently create a
virtual subsystem.

This patch implements subsys_virtual_register() by factoring out
subsys_register() from subsys_system_register() and using it with
virtual_device_parent() as the origin directory. It's identical to
subsys_system_register() other than the origin directory but we aren't
gonna restrict the device names which should be used under it.

This will be used to expose workqueue attributes to userland.

Kay, does this look okay? If so, how should this be routed?

Thanks.
