[Liu, Yi L] I agree that iommu_invalidate() is too generic. Additionally, also better to avoid
making it svm specific.

The reason we introduce this API is in vSVM case is that guest owns the first level page
table(vtd). If we use similar mechanism for vIOVA, then we also need to passdown guest's
vIOVA tlb flush.

Since it is to expose an API for iommu tlb flushes requests from userspace/guest which is out
of iommu. How about naming it as iommu_tlb_external_invalidate()?

[Liu, Yi L] So far, for virtualization, we would not allow any guest to flush all the
physical iommu tlb. Hypervisor will limit it even if guest issues invalidate with global
granularity. Jacob just wants to show all the possible granularity. Actually, global gran
can be a big hammer to clear cache, maybe there is usage somehow. For now, I think
we may just remove it.

Thanks,
Yi L
