The VFIO external user API is enriched with 3 new functions that
allows a kernel user external to VFIO to retrieve some information
from a VFIO device.

- vfio_device_get_external_user enables to get a vfio device from
  its fd and increments its reference counter
- vfio_device_put_external_user decrements the reference counter
- vfio_external_base_device returns a handle to the struct device

v2 -> v3:
- reword the commit message

v1 -> v2:

- vfio_external_get_base_device renamed into vfio_external_base_device
- vfio_external_get_type removed
