[PATCH 4/5] [SCSI] Do not use platform_bus as a parent

The host devices without a parent were "forcefully adopted"
by platform bus. This patch removes this assignment. In
effect the dev_dev may be NULL now, which means ISA.

This patch is a part of effort to remove references to platform_bus
and make it static.
James, could you please have a look and advice if the change is
correct? Would you happen to know the "real reasons" behind
using the root platform_bus device a parent?
