Well with a guest iommu I'm guessing it can go up significantly, right?

That's an option.
Also, can kernel handle a batch that is too large by applying
parts of it iteratively?
Or must all changes take place atomically after BATCH_END?
If atomically, we might need to limit batch size to make
sure kernel can keep a copy in memory.
