    - Any exporters or users of the dma-buf buffer sharing framework must have
    a 'select DMA_SHARED_BUFFER' in their respective Kconfigs.

    +- To avoid the wrath of userspace library writers exporting subsystems must have
    + a flag parameter in the ioctl that creates the dma-buf fd which needs to
    + support at least the O_CLOEXEC fd flag. This needs to be passed in the flag
    + parameter of dma_buf_export.
