Subject: [RFC PATCH v4 02/10] vfio/pci: macros to generate module_init and module_exit for vendor modules

vendor modules call macro module_vfio_pci_register_vendor_handler to
generate module_init and module_exit.
It is necessary to ensure that vendor modules always call
vfio_pci_register_vendor_driver() on driver loading and
vfio_pci_unregister_vendor_driver on driver unloading,
because
(1) at compiling time, there's only a dependency of vendor modules on
vfio_pci.
(2) at runtime,
- vendor modules add refs of vfio_pci on a successful calling of
  vfio_pci_register_vendor_driver() and deref of vfio_pci on a
  successful calling of vfio_pci_unregister_vendor_driver().
- vfio_pci only adds refs of vendor module on a successful probe of vendor
  driver.
  vfio_pci derefs vendor module when unbinding from a device.

So, after vfio_pci is unbound from a device, the vendor module to that
device is free to get unloaded. However, if that vendor module does not
call vfio_pci_unregister_vendor_driver() in its module_exit, vfio_pci may
hold a stale pointer to vendor module.
