virtio-mmio: Devices parameter parsing
This patch adds an option to instantiate guest virtio-mmio devices basing on a kernel command line (or module) parameter, for example: virtio_mmio.devices=0x100@0x100b0000:48 Signed-off-by: Pawel Moll <pawel.moll@arm.com> Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au>
