Series put on hold after discussion with Bjorn. First we need to define the interface and mechanism
to allow any service name to be associated with an rpmsg service based on the IOCTL user interface.
The goal is to allow the Linux application to initiate the link. This work will be done on the
rpmsg char and then extend to other generic interfaces such as TTY.
