Subject[PATCH v5 0/2] staging: ion: get one device per heap
version 5:
- create a configuration flag to keep legacy Ion misc device

version 4:
- add a configuration flag to switch between legacy Ion misc device
and one device per heap version.
This change has been suggested after Laura talks at XDC 2017.

version 3:
- change ion_device_add_heap prototype to return a possible error.

version 2:
- simplify ioctl check like propose by Dan
- make sure that we don't register more than ION_DEV_MAX heaps.

Until now all ion heaps are addressing using the same device "/dev/ion".
This way of working doesn't allow to give access rights (for example with
SElinux rules) per heap.
This series propose to have one device "/dev/ionX" per heap.
Query heaps informations will be possible on each device node but
allocation request will only be possible if heap_mask_id match with device minor number.

Using legacy Ion misc device is still by setting ION_LEGACY_DEVICE_API
configuration flag.
