This patch series adds partial read support via a new call
request_partial_firmware_into_buf.
Such support is needed when the whole file is not needed and/or
only a smaller portion of the file will fit into allocated memory
at any one time.
In order to accept the enhanced API it has been requested that kernel
selftests and upstreamed driver utilize the API enhancement and so
are included in this patch series.

Also in this patch series is the addition of a new Broadcom VK driver
utilizing the new request_firmware_into_buf enhanced API.

Further comment followed to add IMA support of the partial reads
originating from request_firmware_into_buf calls.

Changes from v8:
 - removed swiss army knife kernel_pread_* style approach
   and simply add offset parameter in addition to those needed
   in kernel_read_* functions thus removing need for kernel_pread enum
Changes from v6:
 - update ima_post_read_file check on IMA_FIRMWARE_PARTIAL_READ
 - adjust new driver i2c-slave-eeprom.c use of request_firmware_into_buf
 - remove an extern
Changes from v5:
 - add IMA FIRMWARE_PARTIAL_READ support
 - change kernel pread flags to enum
 - removed legacy support from driver
 - driver fixes
Changes from v4:
 - handle reset issues if card crashes
 - allow driver to have min required msix
 - add card utilization information
Changes from v3:
 - fix sparse warnings
 - fix printf format specifiers for size_t
 - fix 32-bit cross-compiling reports 32-bit shifts
 - use readl/writel,_relaxed to access pci ioremap memory,
  removed memory barriers and volatile keyword with such change
 - driver optimizations for interrupt/poll functionalities
Changes from v2:
 - remove unnecessary code and mutex locks in lib/test_firmware.c
 - remove VK_IOCTL_ACCESS_BAR support from driver and use pci sysfs instead
 - remove bitfields
 - remove Kconfig default m
 - adjust formatting and some naming based on feedback
 - fix error handling conditions
 - use appropriate return codes
 - use memcpy_toio instead of direct access to PCIE bar
