Subject[PATCH v4 0/6] reorganize and add FADump sysfs files
Currently, FADump sysfs files are present inside /sys/kernel directory.
But as the number of FADump sysfs file increases it is not a good idea to
push all of them in /sys/kernel directory. It is better to have separate
directory to keep all the FADump sysfs files.

Patch series reorganizes the FADump sysfs files and avail all the existing
FADump sysfs files present inside /sys/kernel into a new directory
/sys/kernel/fadump. The backward compatibility is maintained by adding a
symlink for every sysfs file that has moved to new location. Also a new
FADump sys interface is added to get the amount of memory reserved by FADump
for saving the crash dump.

v1 -> v2:
- Move fadump_release_opalcore sysfs to FADump Kobject instead of
- Changed the patch order 1,2,3,4 -> 2,1,3,4 (First add the ABI doc for
exisiting sysfs file then replicate them under FADump kobject).

v2 -> v3:
- Remove the fadump_ prefix from replicated FADump sysfs file names.

v3 -> v4:
- New patch that adds a wrapper function to create symlink with
custom symlink file name.
- Add symlink instead of replicating the FADump sysfs files.
- Move the OPAL core rel
