[PATCH 08/15] nvme: Pass attribute group to device_add_disk

Previously after device_add_disk returns, the KOBJ_ADD uevent is already
emitted. Adding attributes after that is a poor usage of kobject, and
in practice may result in race conditions with userspace, for
example udev checks availability of certain attributes and initializes
/dev entries conditionally.

device_add_disk can handle adding attribute group better, so use it.
