driver core: check bus->match without holding device lock
This patch moves bus->match out from driver_probe_device and does not hold device lock to check the match between a device and a driver. The idea has been verified by the commit 6cd495860901, which leads to a faster boot. But the commit 6cd495860901 has the following drawbacks: 1),only does the quick check in the path of __driver_attach->driver_probe_device, not in other paths; 2),for a matched device and driver, check the same match twice. It is a waste of cpu ,especially for some drivers with long device id table (eg. usb-storage driver). This patch adds a helper of driver_match_device to check the match in all paths, and testes the match only once.
