Add a sysfs attribute which denotes a range from the dax region
to be allocated. It's an write only @mapping sysfs attribute in
the format of '<start>-<end>' to allocate a range. @start and
@end use hexadecimal values and the @pgoff is implicitly ordered
wrt to previous writes to @mapping sysfs e.g. a write of a range
of length 1G the pgoff is 0..1G(-4K), a second write will use
@pgoff for 1G+4K..<size>.

This range mapping interface is useful for:

 1) Application which want to implement its own allocation logic,
 and thus pick the desired ranges from dax_region.

 2) For use cases like VMM fast restart[0] where after kexec we
 want to the same gpa<->phys mappings (as originally created
 before kexec).
