    Subject[PATCH] kvm: Disable device assignment without interrupt remapping
    IOMMU interrupt remapping support provides a further layer of
    isolation for device assignment by preventing arbitrary interrupt
    block DMA writes by a malicious guest from reaching the host. By
    default, we should require that the platform provides interrupt
    remapping support, with an opt-in mechanism for existing behavior.

    Both AMD IOMMU and Intel VT-d2 hardware support interrupt
    remapping, however we currently only have software support on
    the Intel side. Users wishing to re-enable device assignment
    when interrupt remapping is not supported on the platform can
    use the "allow_unsafe_assigned_interrupts=1" module option.
