Subject[RFC][PATCH 0/5 v2] DMA-BUF Heaps (destaging ION)
Here is a initial RFC of the dma-buf heaps patchset Andrew and I
have been working on which tries to destage a fair chunk of ION

The patchset implements per-heap devices which can be opened
directly and then an ioctl is used to allocate a dmabuf from the

The interface is similar, but much simpler then IONs, only
providing an ALLOC ioctl.

Also, I've provided simple system and cma heaps. The system
heap in particular is missing the page-pool optimizations ION
had, but works well enough to validate the interface.

I've booted and tested these patches with AOSP on the HiKey960
using the kernel tree here:

And the userspace changes here:

Compared to ION, this patchset is missing the system-contig,
carveout and chunk heaps, as I don't have a device that uses
those, so I'm unable to do much useful validation there.
Additionally we have no upstream users of chunk or carveout,
and the system-contig has been deprecated in the common/andoid-*
kernels, so this should be ok.

I've also removed the stats accounting for now, since it should
be implemented by the heaps themselves.

Eventual TODOS:
* Reimplement page-pool for system heap (working on this)
* Add stats accounting to system/cma heaps
* Make the kselftest actually useful
* Add other heaps folks see as useful (would love to get
some help from actual carveout/chunk users)!

That said, the main user-interface is shaping up and I wanted
to get some input on the device model (particularly from GreKH)
and any other API/ABI specific input.
