Good point. I was calling it iommu_passdown_invalidate() originally.
The invalidation request comes from guest or user space instead of
in-kernel unmap kind of calls.

Right, guest should not go beyond its own domain.

Those are based on vt-d context cache flush granularity, domain
selective flushes all context caches associated with a domain ID.
Device selective flush flushes context caches of a source ID.
But like you pointed out below, since context cache flush will come in
as unbind call, there is no need to do passdown invalidate. I can
remove that.

Here I am trying to use all generic definitions, which is a superset of
all vendor models. I am likely missing out some non-vt-d cases.

Right no need to passdown context cache invalidation for VT-d. I just
wasn't sure it is the same for all models. Again, trying to have a
superset of generic fields.

Thanks!
