Description

If device drivers are going to support using eventfd as a notification mechanism, they will need an API to establish access to such resources and read/write values to it. Those read and write operations will potentially occur from contexts outside the process(s) owning the eventfd file descriptor themselves, so they should not require the fd lookup at operation time.
