Let's add the basic infrastructure to exclude some physical memory
regions completely from /dev/mem access, on any architecture and under
any system configuration (independent of CONFIG_STRICT_DEVMEM and
independent of "iomem=").

Use it for virtio-mem, to disallow mapping any virtio-mem memory via
/dev/mem to user space after the virtio-mem driver was loaded: there is
no sane use case to access the device-managed memory region via /dev/mem
once the driver is actively (un)plugging memory within that region and
we want to make sure that nobody will accidentially access unplugged
memory in a sane environment.

Details can be found in patch #1.

v1 -> v2:
- "/dev/mem: disallow access to explicitly excluded system RAM regions"
-- Introduce and use for_each_resource() and next_resource_skip_children()
-- s/iomem_range_contains_excluded/iomem_range_contains_excluded_devmem/
- "kernel/resource: cleanup and optimize iomem_is_exclusive()"
-- Use for_each_resource()
