I'm imagining that the RDMA drivers would use this interface on their
per-process 'doorbell' BAR pages - we also wish to have P2P DMA to
this memory. Also the entire VFIO PCI BAR mmap would be good to cover
with this too.

Jerome, I think it would be nice to have a helper scheme - I think the
simple case would be simple remapping of PCI BAR memory, so if we
could have, say something like:

static const struct vm_operations_struct my_ops {
.p2p_map = p2p_ioremap_map_op,
.p2p_unmap = p2p_ioremap_unmap_op,
}

struct ioremap_data {
[..]
}

fops_mmap() {
vma->private_data = &driver_priv->ioremap_data;
return p2p_ioremap_device_memory(vma, exporting_device, [..]);
}

Which closely matches at least what the RDMA drivers do. Where
p2p_ioremap_device_memory populates p2p_map and p2p_unmap pointers
with sensible functions, etc.

It looks like vfio would be able to use this as well (though I am
unsure why vfio uses remap_pfn_range instead of io_remap_pfn range for
BAR memory..)

Do any drivers need more control than this?
