rpmsg_char does expose a rpmsg channel (be it virtio, smd or glink) to
user space. This patch series add support for invoking TIOCMGET and
TIOCMSET on these channels.

In addition to adding the client side of this to rpmsg_char it provides
this support for glink, but the same mechanism exists in smd - while
this is not supported (today) by the virtio rpmsg.


I'm uncertain of how we could implement this mechanism for virtio rpmsg,
given that it as a transport doesn't really have a concept of
channels/flows - but it's really useful to have!

PS. rpmsg_set_signals() can be called from any rpmsg device to perform
flow control of the communication channel.
