I *really* need to post my halt/clear patches soon, I think.

This is an user api change: We got -EOPNOTSUPP in the region's return
code before.

You should not allow the halt/clear functions to be specified, if you
go that route. The precedence order needs to be clear -> halt -> start.

> + return -EINVAL;

As said, that's a user api change. Previously, user space could detect
whether halt/clear are supported or not by simply specifying the
halt/clear function and checking for -EOPNOTSUPP in the region's return
code. Now they get -EINVAL (which I think is not a good return code,
even if we did not have the api breakage).

I don't think we should separate the ssch handling. The major
difference to halt/clear is that it needs channel program translation.
Everything else (issuing the instruction and processing the interrupt)
are basically the same. If we just throw everything at the hardware and
let the host's channel subsystem figure it out, we already should be
fine with regard to most of the races.
