Whatever you say, "Andrew F. Davis", or whomever you really are! ;)

Well, we have to have one u32 for padding. And I figured if we needed
anything more then a u32, then we're in for 2 more.

And I think the potential of the alignment and heap-private flags, I
worry we might want to have something, but I guess we could just add
a new ioctl and keep the support for the old one if folks prefer.

Hrm. I'll have to look.

I guess I'd just move the include/linux/dma-heap.h to
drivers/dma-buf/heaps/ and keep it localized there.
But whichever. Feel free to also send a patch and I can fold it down.
