 access

> This is a proposal which will allow access to driver defined address

> The suggested implementation will allow exposing regions to the user,

> A snapshot represents a memory image of a region taken by the driver.

> If a device collects a snapshot of an address region it can be later
> exposed using devlink region read or dump commands.
