    Driver: add driver_add_kobj for looney iseries_veth driver
    
    The iseries driver wants to hang kobjects off of its driver, so, to
    preserve backwards compatibility, we need to add a call to the driver
    core to allow future changes to work properly.
    
    Hopefully no one uses this function in the future and the iseries_veth
    driver authors come to their senses so I can remove this hack...
