debugfs: Add debugfs_create_u64()
I went to use this the other day, only to find it didn't exist. It's a straight copy of the debugfs u32 code, then s/u32/u64/. A quick test shows it seems to be working. Signed-off-by: Michael Ellerman <michael@ellerman.id.au> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de>
