Subject[PATCH v3 0/5] IOMMU user API enhancement
IOMMU user API header was introduced to support nested DMA translation and
related fault handling. The current UAPI data structures consist of three
areas that cover the interactions between host kernel and guest:
- fault handling
- cache invalidation
- bind guest page tables, i.e. guest PASID

Future extensions are likely to support more architectures and vIOMMU features.

In the previous discussion, using user-filled data size and feature flags is
made a preferred approach over a unified version number.

In addition to introduce argsz field to data structures, this patchset is also
trying to document the UAPI design, usage, and extension rules. VT-d driver
changes to utilize the new argsz field is included, VFIO usage is to follow.



- Rewrote backward compatibility rule to support existing code
re-compiled with newer kernel UAPI header that runs on older
kernel. Based on review comment from Alex W.
- Take user pointer directly in UAPI functions. Perform argsz check
and copy_from_user() in IOMMU driver. Eliminate the need for
VFIO or other upper layer to parse IOMMU data.
- Create wrapper function for in-kernel users of UAPI functions
- Removed unified API version and helper
- Introduced argsz for each UAPI data
- Introduced UAPI doc
