VFIO will exercise this code path every time when mapping DMA memory.
This is normal and VFIO *expects* the function to fail - it is only if
the function succeeds that VFIO needs to back down from the DMA
mapping and fail.

This means that there would be a warning every time a VFIO user maps
some memory for DMA use, even though nothing went wrong.
