Subject: [GIT PULL 00/22] intel_th: Updates for v5.2

Hi Greg,

Here are the updates that I have for v5.2. The main item on the list is
the support for software trace sinks that I call "buffer drivers". The
purpose is to create a software path for the trace data coming out of
the TH that would allow exporting it via a USB gadget or ethernet or
some such. Most of the patches are reworks in the MSU code to enable
this, including interrupt handling and resource passing between glue
layers and the driver core. An example sink driver is included. Also,
there's a bugfix that's backportable all the way to stable 4.4.

These are all, as usual, tested with aiaiai for bisectability, cppcheck,
sparse, smatch, coccinelle and checkpatch errors.

Signed tag is at the repo below. Individual patches follow. Please
consider pulling or applying. Apologies for late request.
