lockdep: Add novalidate class for dev->mutex conversion
The conversion of device->sem to device->mutex resulted in lockdep warnings. Create a novalidate class for now until the driver folks come up with separate classes. That way we have at least the basic mutex debugging coverage. Add a checkpatch error so the usage is reserved for device->mutex.
