D-Bus bus names

To enable the use of Linux features like cgroups prioritization and udev/systemd control, one instance of phosphor-hwmon is intended to be run per hwmon sysfs class instance.

This requires an algorithm for selecting a stable, well-known D-Bus busname.

The algorithm is <PREFIX>-<ID>.Hwmon<N> where PREFIX is a meson configurable prefix (BUSNAME_PREFIX=xyz.openbmc_project by default), ID is either a std::hash of the /sys/devices path backing the hwmon class instance or provided suffix value from the command line, and N is the implemented phosphor-hwmon D-Bus API version.
