Subject[PATCH v4 4/6] powerpc/powernv: move core and fadump_release_opalcore under new kobject
Date
The /sys/firmware/opal/core and /sys/kernel/fadump_release_opalcore sysfs
files are used to export and release the OPAL memory on PowerNV platform.
let's organize them into a new kobject under /sys/firmware/opal/mpipl/
directory.

A symlink is added to maintain the backward compatibility for
/sys/firmware/opal/core sysfs file.
