fault-injection: add ability to export fault_attr in arbitrary directory
init_fault_attr_dentries() is used to export fault_attr via debugfs. But it can only export it in debugfs root directory. Per Forlin is working on mmc_fail_request which adds support to inject data errors after a completed host transfer in MMC subsystem. The fault_attr for mmc_fail_request should be defined per mmc host and export it in debugfs directory per mmc host like /sys/kernel/debug/mmc0/mmc_fail_request. init_fault_attr_dentries() doesn't help for mmc_fail_request. So this introduces fault_create_debugfs_attr() which is able to create a directory in the arbitrary directory and replace init_fault_attr_dentries().
