I guess the fundamental question is: Should the scalable mode logic,
i.e. guest SVA at PASID granu device, be perceived as part of the
overall SVA functionality?

My view is yes, we shall share SVA and gSVA whenever we can.

The longer term, which I am working on right now, is to converge
intel_svm_bind_mm to the generic iommu_sva_bind_device() and use common
data structures as well. It is conceivable that these common structures
span across hardware architectures, also guest vs host SVA usages.

i.e. iommu_ops have
iommu_sva_bind_gpasid() for SM/gSVA
iommu_sva_bind_device() for native SVA

Or I am missing your point completely?
