kdbus: add connection pool implementation
A pool for data received from the kernel is installed for every connection of the bus, and it is used to copy data from the kernel to userspace clients, for messages and other information. It is accessed when one of the following ioctls is issued: * KDBUS_CMD_MSG_RECV, to receive a message * KDBUS_CMD_NAME_LIST, to dump the name registry * KDBUS_CMD_CONN_INFO, to retrieve information on a connection The offsets returned by either one of the aforementioned ioctls describe offsets inside the pool. Internally, the pool is organized in slices, that are dynamically allocated on demand. The overall size of the pool is chosen by the connection when it connects to the bus with KDBUS_CMD_HELLO. In order to make the slice available for subsequent calls, KDBUS_CMD_FREE has to be called on the offset. To access the memory, the caller is expected to mmap() it to its task.
