This is technically the second iteration of the SHM Bridge enablement on
QCom platforms but in practice it's a complete rewrite.

During the internal discussion with QCom the requirement has been established
as an SHM Bridge pool manager with the assumption that there will be multiple
users, each with their own pool. The problem with this is that we don't have
many potential users of SHM pools upstream at the moment which was rightfully
pointed out in the reviews under v1 (which even had some unused symbols etc.).

Moreover: after some investigating, it turns out that there simply isn't any
need for multiple pools as the core SCM only allocates a buffer if given call
requires more than 4 arguments and there are only a handful of SCM calls that
need to pass a physical address to a buffer as argument to the trustzone.

Additionally all but one SCM call allocate buffers passed to the TZ only for
the duration of the call and then free it right aftr it returns. The one
exception is called once and the buffer it uses can remain in memory until
released by the user.

This all makes using multiple pools wasteful as most of that memory will be
reserved but remain unused 99% of the time. What we need is a single pool of
SCM memory that deals out chunks of suitable format (coherent and
page-aligned) that fulfills the requirements of all calls.

As not all architectures support SHM bridge, it makes sense to first unify the
memory operations in SCM calls. All users do some kind of DMA mapping to obtain
buffers, most using dma_alloc_coherent() which impacts performance.

Genalloc pools are very fast so let's use them instead. Create a custom
allocator that also deals with the mapping and use it across all SCM calls.

Then once this is done, let's extend the allocator to use the SHM bridge
functionality if available on the given platform.

While at it: let's create a qcom specific directory in drivers/firmware/ and
move relevant code in there.

I couldn't test all SCM calls but tested with the inline crypto engine on
sm8550 and sa8775p that runs most of new code paths (with and without SHM
bridge). At least qseecom would need some Tested-by.

v1 -> v2:
- too many changes to list, it's a complete rewrite as explained above
