Look at Documentation/ioctl/ioctl-number.txt and reserve a range within 'R'
that doesn't conflict.

Add thorough documentation of this API.

I'm not sure how it's usually handled with staging drivers, but eventually
this will need to move to an appropriate uapi header. Is this functionality
even needed before the driver comes out of staging? I don't see "userspace
restool support" in drivers/staging/fsl-mc/TODO.

Don't reference struct mc_command without including the header that defines
it.

No synchronization on the list?

Why is the first user handled differently from subsequent users? Does each
user really need its own portal, or can you just synchronize access?
