PM: introduce set_target method in pm_ops

Commit 52ade9b3b97fd3bea42842a056fe0786c28d0555 changed the suspend code
ordering to execute pm_ops->prepare() after the device model per-device
.suspend() calls in order to fix some ACPI-related issues.  Unfortunately, it
broke the at91 platform which assumed that pm_ops->prepare() would be called
before suspending devices.

at91 used pm_ops->prepare() to get notified of the target system sleep state,
so that it could use this information while suspending devices.  However, with
the current suspend code ordering pm_ops->prepare() is called too late for
this purpose.  Thus, at91 needs an additional method in 'struct pm_ops' that
will be used for notifying the platform of the target system sleep state.
Moreover, in the future such a method will also be needed by ACPI.

This patch adds the .set_target() method to 'struct pm_ops' and makes the
suspend code call it, if implemented, before executing the device model
per-device .suspend() calls.  It also modifies the at91 code to use
pm_ops->set_target() instead of pm_ops->prepare().
