Series in general looks good to me, but this change needs a little more
detail + probably some level of example userspace flow.

I don't really understand how this is used!

Also, it's easy to test output buffers with the kfifo support so we
should be able to move forward quickly with that part (1-3, 4 is probably
fine as well as clearly harmless).

The dma stuff worries me more, at least partly based on the experience
of the original dma buffers which basically sat their unused (in upstream)
for a very long time. So to move these forward, they need to come
with users...

Thanks,

Jonathan
