I think much/most of those instructions should go (additionally) into
the sample driver source. Otherwise, it's not clear to the reader why
they should wrap the device in mdev instead of simply using a normal
vfio-pci device.

Why does this still need to select VFIO_PCI? Shouldn't all needed
infrastructure rather be covered by VFIO_PCI_COMMON already?

VFIO_MDEV_DEVICE already depends on VFIO_MDEV. But maybe also make this
depend on PCI?

"A PCI device bound to this driver will be assigned through the
mediated device framework."
