Rename struct device to struct _device

Description

Rename struct device to struct _device

types.h defines device_t as a typedef of struct device *. struct device
is defined in subr_bus.c and almost all of the kernel uses device_t.
The LinuxKPI also defines a struct device, so type confusion can occur.

This causes bugs and ambiguity for debugging tools. Rename the FreeBSD
struct device to struct _device.
