The vfio_device pointer should be stored in the struct file

Having looked at VFIO alot more closely last week, this is even more
trivial - VFIO only creates mmaps of memory we want to invalidate, so
this is just very simple:

struct vfio_device *vfio_device_get_from_vma(struct vm_area_struct *vma)
{
if (!vma->vm_file ||vma->vm_file->f_op != &vfio_device_fops)
return ERR_PTR(-ENODEV);
return vma->vm_file->f_private;
}

The only use of the special ops would be if there are multiple types
of mmap's going on, but for this narrow use case those would be safely
distinguished by the vm_pgoff instead

No externs on function prototypes in new code please, we've been
slowly deleting them..
