Unfortunately I don't have a 4.19 version of dmabuf heaps (all the
work has been done this year, post 4.19). I'm planning to backport to
5.4 for AOSP, but I've not really thought about 4.19. Most likely I
won't have time to look at it until after the changes are upstream and
the 5.4 backport is done.
Is the bmeson tree likely to only stay at 4.19? Or will it move forward?
