Subject: [PATCH v2 0/2] Add sync object UAPI support to VirtIO-GPU driver

We have multiple Vulkan context types that are awaiting for the addition
of the sync object DRM UAPI support to the VirtIO-GPU kernel driver:

 1. Venus context
 2. Native contexts (virtio-freedreno, virtio-intel, virtio-amdgpu)

Mesa core supports DRM sync object UAPI, providing Vulkan drivers with a
generic fencing implementation that we want to utilize.

This patch adds initial sync objects support. It creates fundament for a
further fencing improvements. Later on we will want to extend the VirtIO-GPU
fencing API with passing fence IDs to host for waiting, it will be a new
additional VirtIO-GPU IOCTL and more. Today we have several VirtIO-GPU context
drivers in works that require VirtIO-GPU to support sync objects UAPI.

The patch is heavily inspired by the sync object UAPI implementation of the
MSM driver.


v2: - Fixed chain-fence context matching by making use of

    - Fixed potential uninitialized var usage in error code patch of
      parse_post_deps(). MSM driver had a similar issue that is fixed
      already in upstream.

    - Added new patch that refactors job submission code path. I found
      that it was very difficult to add a new/upcoming host-waits feature
      because of how variables are passed around the code, the virtgpu_ioctl.c
      also was growing to unmanageable size.
