This patchset introduces a new dma heap, "chunk-heap" that makes it
easy to perform the bulk allocation of high order pages.
It has been created to help optimize the 4K/8K HDR video playback
with secure DRM HW to protect contents on memory. The HW needs
physically contiguous memory chunks(e.g, 64K) up to several hundred
MB memory.

To make such high-order big bulk allocations work, chunk-heap uses
CMA area. To avoid CMA allocation long stall on blocking pages(e.g.,
page writeback and/or page locking), it uses failfast mode of the
CMA API(i.e., __GFP_NORETRY) so it will continue to find easy
migratable pages in different pageblocks without stalling. At last
resort, it will allow the blocking only if it couldn't find the
available memory in the end.

First two patches introduces the failfast mode as __GFP_NORETRY
in alloc_contig_range and the allow to use it from the CMA API.
Third patch introduces device tree syntax for chunk-heap to bind
the specific CMA area with chunk-heap.
Finally, last patch implements chunk-heap as dma-buf heap.
