There are some devices that only allow 1 DMA window to exist at a time,
and in those cases, a DDW is never created to them, since the default DMA
window keeps using this resource.

LoPAR recommends this procedure:
1. Remove the default DMA window,
2. Query for which configs the DDW can be created,
3. Create a DDW.

Patch #1:
Create defines for outputs of ibm,ddw-applicable, so it's easier to
identify them.

Patch #2:
- After LoPAR level 2.8, there is an extension that can make
  ibm,query-pe-dma-windows to have 6 outputs instead of 5. This changes the
  order of the outputs, and that can cause some trouble. 
- query_ddw() was updated to check how many outputs the 
  ibm,query-pe-dma-windows is supposed to have, update the rtas_call() and
  deal correctly with the outputs in both cases.
- This patch looks somehow unrelated to the series, but it can avoid future
  problems on DDW creation.

Patch #3 moves the window-removing code from remove_ddw() to
remove_dma_window(), creating a way to delete any DMA window, so it can be
used to delete the default DMA window.

Patch #4 makes use of the remove_dma_window() from patch #3 to remove the
default DMA window before query_ddw(). It also implements a new rtas call
to recover the default DMA window, in case anything fails after it was
removed, and a DDW couldn't be created.

Patch #5:
Instead of destroying the created DDW if it doesn't map the whole
partition, make use of it instead of the default DMA window.

Patch #6:
Changes the way iommu_bypass_supported_pSeriesLP() check for 
iommu_bypass: instead of checking the address returned by enable_ddw(),
it checks a new output value that reflects if the DDW created maps
the whole partition.

All patches were tested into an LPAR with an Ethernet VF:
4005:01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Mellanox Technologies MT27700 Family
[ConnectX-4 Virtual Function]

Changes since v1:
- Add defines for ibm,ddw-applicable and ibm,ddw-extensions outputs
- Merge aux function query_ddw_out_sz() into query_ddw()
- Merge reset_dma_window() patch (prev. #2) into remove default DMA
  window patch (#4).
- Keep device_node *np name instead of using pdn in remove_*()
- Rename 'device_node *pdn' into 'parent' in new functions
- Rename dfl_win to default_win
- Only remove the default DMA window if there is no window available
  in first query.
- Check if default DMA window can be restored before removing it.
- Fix 'unitialized use' (found by travis mpe:ci-test)
- New patches #5 and #6
