rapidio: make enumeration/discovery configurable
Systems that use RapidIO fabric may need to implement their own enumeration and discovery methods which are better suitable for needs of a target application. The following set of patches is intended to simplify process of introduction of new RapidIO fabric enumeration/discovery methods. The first patch offers ability to add new RapidIO enumeration/discovery methods using kernel configuration options. This new configuration option mechanism allows to select statically linked or modular enumeration/discovery method(s) from the list of existing methods or use external module(s). This patch also updates the currently existing enumeration/discovery code to be used as a statically linked or modular method. The corresponding configuration option is named "Basic enumeration/discovery" method. This is the only one configuration option available today but new methods are expected to be introduced after adoption of provided patches. The second patch address a long time complaint of RapidIO subsystem users regarding fabric enumeration/discovery start sequence. Existing implementation offers only a boot-time enumeration/discovery start which requires synchronized boot of all endpoints in RapidIO network. While it works for small closed configurations with limited number of endpoints, using this approach in systems with large number of endpoints is quite challenging. To eliminate requirement for synchronized start the second patch introduces RapidIO enumeration/discovery start from user space. For compatibility with the existing RapidIO subsystem implementation, automatic boot time enumeration/discovery start can be configured in by specifying "rio-scan.scan=1" command line parameter if statically linked basic enumeration method is selected. This patch: Rework to implement RapidIO enumeration/discovery method selection combined with ability to use enumeration/discovery as a kernel module. This patch adds ability to introduce new RapidIO enumeration/discovery methods using kernel configuration options. Configuration option mechanism allows to select statically linked or modular enumeration/discovery method from the list of existing methods or use external modules. If a modular enumeration/discovery is selected each RapidIO mport device can have its own method attached to it. The existing enumeration/discovery code was updated to be used as statically linked or modular method. This configuration option is named "Basic enumeration/discovery" method. Several common routines have been moved from rio-scan.c to make them available to other enumeration methods and reduce number of exported symbols.
