AFAIU the device driver model, the struct class is higher level
representation of the device used to provide the informations to create
devices in /dev.
The device and the class are associated with the call to device_create
which send the event.

However the device passed to device_create must hang on a bus and be
managed by a driver.

I do not see the interest of having a class if we do not plan to create
a device in /dev.
We could add one in prevision, but it is not a replacement for the bus.

Regards,
Pierre
