Bus domains controllers allow to divided system on chip into multiple domains
that can be used to select by who hardware blocks could be accessed.
A domain could be a cluster of CPUs (or coprocessors), a range of addresses or
a group of hardware blocks.

Framework architecture is inspirated by pinctrl framework:
- a default configuration could be applied before bind the driver
- configurations could be apllied dynamically by drivers
- device node provides the bus domains configurations

An example of bus domains controller is STM32 ETZPC hardware block
which got 3 domains:
- secure: hardware blocks are only accessible by software running on trust
  zone.
- non-secure: hardware blocks are accessible by non-secure software (i.e.
  linux kernel).
- coprocessor: hardware blocks are only accessible by the corpocessor.
Up to 94 hardware blocks of the soc could be managed by ETZPC and 
assigned to one of the three domains.

At least two other hardware blocks can take benefits of this:
- ARM TZC-400: http://infocenter.arm.com/help/topic/com.arm.doc.100325_0001_02_en/arm_corelink_tzc400_trustzone_address_space_controller_trm_100325_0001_02_en.pdf
  which is able to manage up to 8 regions in address space.
- IMX Ressource Domain Controller (RDC): supports four domains and up to eight regions 

This version has been rebased on top of v5.1-rc1.
