mei: bus: Add device enabling and disabling API
It should be left to the drivers to enable and disable the device on the MEI bus when e.g getting probed. For drivers to be able to safely call the enable and disable hooks, the mei_cl_ops must be set before it's probed and thus this should happen before registering the device on the MEI bus. Hence the mei_cl_add_device() prototype change.

-In the probe routine the driver basically registers an ME bus event handler
-which is as close as it can get to registering a threaded IRQ handler.

The handler implementation will typically call some I/O routine depending on
the pending events:
