At present, dma_buf_export() takes a series of parameters, which
makes it difficult to add any new parameters for exporters, if required.

Make it simpler by moving all these parameters into a struct, and pass
the struct * as parameter to dma_buf_export().

While at it, unite dma_buf_export_named() with dma_buf_export(), and
change all callers accordingly.

v3: Daniel Thompson caught the C99 warning issue w/ using {0}; using
    {.exp_name = xxx} instead.

v2: add macro to zero out local struct, and fill KBUILD_MODNAME by default

Sorry, a few more comments. Should have sent these before but at least
the are all related only to documentation. Once that is fixed then:

Documentation/dma-buf-sharing.txt needs updating as a result of these
changes but its not in the diffstat.

I'm not at all sure about this. Its a novel trick but won't this make
the HTML docs come out looking a bit weird? Is there any prior art for
double-documenting the structure members like this?
