	Dong Aisheng, kernel

These patches add support to configure the on-chip SRAM via device-tree
node and to obtain the resulting genalloc pool from a phandle pointing   
at the node.
This allows drivers to allocate SRAM with the genalloc API without
hard-coding the genalloc pool address.

regards
Philipp

This improves the symmetry of iram_alloc and iram_free in that
iram_free has to be called with the virtual address now.
Also, gen_pool_virt_to_phys is now functional.

This patch keeps all created pools in a global list and adds two
functions that allow to retrieve the gen_pool pointer from a known
physical address and from a device tree node.

Users of the iram_alloc/free API should
convert to the genalloc API instead:

-	virt = iram_alloc(SIZE, &phys);
+	gen_pool_alloc(iram_pool, SIZE);
+	phys = gen_pool_virt_to_phys(iram_pool, virt);
 	/* ... */
-	iram_free(virt, SIZE);
+	gen_pool_free(iram_pool, virt, SIZE);
