Rather than using a session buffer that contains pointers to private
session data elsewhere, have a single session buffer.
This session is created for a driver ID, and the mempool element
contains space for the max session private data needed for any driver.

Signed-off-by: Ciara Power <ciara.power@intel.com>

v2:
  - Renamed function typedef from "free" to "clear" as session private
    data isn't being freed in that function.
  - Moved user data API to separate patch.
  - Minor fixes to comments, formatting, return values.

Although Anoob had slightly different idea on missed iova address to the session private data,
the general approach looks ok to me.
