All drivers which implement this need to have some sort of refcount to
allow concurrent vmap usage. Hence implement this in the dma-buf core.

To protect against concurrent calls we need a lock, which potentially
causes new funny locking inversions. But this shouldn't be a problem
for exporters with statically allocated backing storage, and more
dynamic drivers have decent issues already anyway.

Inspired by some refactoring patches from Aaron Plattner, who
implemented the same idea, but only for drm/prime drivers.

v2: Check in dma_buf_release that no dangling vmaps are left.
Suggested by Aaron Plattner. We might want to do similar checks for
attachments, but that's for another patch. Also fix up ERR_PTR return
for vmap.

Compile-tested only - Aaron has been bugging me too a bit too often
about this on irc.

Cheers, Daniel
