[PATCH v7 01/24] mm: Add a PASID field to mm_struct

Some devices can tag their DMA requests with a 20-bit Process Address
Space ID (PASID), allowing them to access multiple address spaces. In
combination with recoverable I/O page faults (for example PCIe PRI),
PASID allows the IOMMU to share page tables with the MMU.

To make sure that a single PASID is allocated for each address space, as
required by Intel ENQCMD, store the PASID in the mm_struct. The IOMMU
driver is in charge of serializing modifications to the PASID field.
