This change creates a devices/virtual/CLASS_NAME tree for struct devices
that belong to a class, yet do not have a "real" struct device for a
parent. It automatically creates the directories on the fly as needed.

Why do you need multiple virtual devices? All parentless class devices
could grow from a single virtual device.
