This patch series add a v4l2 m2m drvier for rockchip RGA direct rendering based 2d graphics acceleration module.

Before, my colleague yakir have write a drm RGA drvier and send it to the lists.
I have been asked to find a userspace user("compositor") for it, but after some studys, my conclusion is that unlike exynos g2d,
rockchip rga are not suitable for compositor. Rockchip RGA have a limited MMU, which means it can only hold several buffers in the same time.
When it was used in compositor, it will waste a lot of time to import/export/flush buffer, resulting in a bad performance.

A few months ago, i saw a discussion in dri-devel at lists.freedesktop.org.
It remind that we could write a v4l2 m2m RGA driver, since we usually use RGA for streaming purpose.

I have test this driver with gstreamer v4l2transform plugin and it work well.

change in V5:
- v4l2-compliance: handle invalid pxielformat 
- v4l2-compliance: add subscribe_event
- add colorspace support

change in V4:
- document the controls.
- change according to Hans's comments

change in V3:
- rename the controls.
- add pm_runtime support.
- enable node by default.
- correct spelling in documents.

change in V2:
- generalize the controls.
- map buffers (10-50 us) in every cmd-run rather than in buffer-import to avoid get_free_pages failed on
actively used systems.
- remove status in dt-bindings examples.
