debugobjects: Add hint for better object identification
In complex subsystems like mac80211 structures can contain several timers and work structs, so identifying a specific instance from the call trace and object type output of debugobjects can be hard. Allow the subsystems which support debugobjects to provide a hint function. This function returns a pointer to a kernel address (preferrably the objects callback function) which is printed along with the debugobjects type. Add hint methods for timer_list, work_struct and hrtimer.
