Since it should be possible to support several hardware
description models at the same time (at least in theory),
for example ACPI and devicetree on a running system, the
platform notifications need to be handled differently.

For now a single "platform_notify" callback function was
used to notify the underlying base system which is in charge
of the hardware description when a new device entry was
added to the system, but that callback is available to only
a single base system at the time. This will add a function
device_platform_notify() and replace all direct
platform_notify() calls with it.

device_platform_notify() will first simply call the
platform_notify() callback, so this commit has no functional
affect, however, the idea is that individual base systems
will put their direct notification calls there instead of
using the platform_notify function pointer.
