ACPI: make sure every acpi_device has an ID

This makes sure every acpi_device has at least one ID.  If we build an
acpi_device for a namespace node with no _HID or _CID, we sometimes
synthesize an ID like "LNXCPU" or "LNXVIDEO".  If we don't even have
that, give it a default "device" ID.

Note that this means things like:
(a PCI slot SxFy device) will have "hid" and "modprobe" entries, where
they didn't before.  These aren't very useful (a HID of "device" doesn't
tell you what *kind* of device it is, so it doesn't help find a driver),
but I don't think they're harmful.

* We build acpi_devices for some objects that don't have _HID or _CID,
