Will, can you comment on this please? Are you open to reusing the code
in drivers/iommu/arm-smmu-v3.c to support a paravirtual device that does
not claim to be compatible with smmuv3 but does try to behave very close to
it except it can cache non-present structures? Or would you rather
the code to support this is forked to qemu-smmu-v3.c?
