This series implement support to a drm_dp_aux chardev that allows reading and
writing an arbitrary amount of bytes to arbitrary dpcd register addresses using
regular read, write and lseek operations.

 - lseek is used to select the register to read/write
 - read/write are used instead of ioctl
 - no blocking_notifier is used, just a direct callback

 - use drm_dp_aux_dev prefix for public functions
 - chardev is named drm_dp_auxN
 - read/write don't allocate a buffer anymore, and transfer up to 16 bytes a
 - remove notifier list from the implementation
 - option on menuconfig is now a boolean
 - add inline stub functions to avoid breakage when this option is disabled

 - fix build system changes - actually disable this module when not selected.

 - Use kref to avoid device closing while still in use 
 - Don't use list, use an idr for storing aux_dev
 - Remove "connector" attribute
 - set aux.dev to the connector drm_connector device, instead of

  drm/dp: Add a drm_aux-dev module for reading/writing dpcd registers.
  drm/dp: Set aux.dev to the drm_connector device, instead of
