vfio: Add PCI device driver
Add PCI device support for VFIO. PCI devices expose regions for accessing config space, I/O port space, and MMIO areas of the device. PCI config access is virtualized in the kernel, allowing us to ensure the integrity of the system, by preventing various accesses while reducing duplicate support across various userspace drivers. I/O port supports read/write access while MMIO also supports mmap of sufficiently sized regions. Support for INTx, MSI, and MSI-X interrupts are provided using eventfds to userspace.
