The purpose is to be able to retrieve the MSI doorbells of an irqchip.
This is now needed since on some platforms those doorbells must be
iommu mapped (in case the MSIs transit through an IOMMU that do not
bypass those transactions).

The assumption is there is a maximum of one doorbell region per cpu.

A doorbell region is characterized by its physical address base, size and
IOMMU protection flag. Those 2 last characteristics are shared among all

irq_chip msi_doorbell_info callback enables to retrieve the doorbells of
the irqchip.

Signed-off-by: Eric Auger <eric.auger@linaro.org>

v7 -> v8:
- size and prot now are shared among all doorbells
- doorbells now directly points to a percpu phys_addr_t

v7: creation
