net/ncsi: Resource management
NCSI spec (DSP0222) defines several objects: package, channel, mode, filter, version and statistics etc. This introduces the data structs to represent those objects and implement functions to manage them. Also, this introduces CONFIG_NET_NCSI for the newly implemented NCSI stack. * The user (e.g. netdev driver) dereference NCSI device by "struct ncsi_dev", which is embedded to "struct ncsi_dev_priv". The later one is used by NCSI stack internally. * Every NCSI device can have multiple packages simultaneously, up to 8 packages. It's represented by "struct ncsi_package" and identified by 3-bits ID. * Every NCSI package can have multiple channels, up to 32. It's represented by "struct ncsi_channel" and identified by 5-bits ID. * Every NCSI channel has version, statistics, various modes and filters. They are represented by "struct ncsi_channel_version", "struct ncsi_channel_stats", "struct ncsi_channel_mode" and "struct ncsi_channel_filter" separately. * Apart from AEN (Asynchronous Event Notification), the NCSI stack works in terms of command and response. This introduces "struct ncsi_req" to represent a complete NCSI transaction made of NCSI request and response. link: https://www.dmtf.org/sites/default/files/standards/documents/DSP0222_1.1.0.pdf Signed-off-by: Gavin Shan <gwshan@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Acked-by: Joel Stanley <joel@jms.id.au> Signed-off-by: David S.
