Subject[RFC 0/3] iommu: Reserved regions for IOVAs beyond dma_mask and iommu aperture
VFIO currently exposes the usable IOVA regions through the
capability. However it fails to take into account the dma_mask
of the devices within the container. The top limit currently is
defined by the iommu aperture.

So, for instance, if the IOMMU supports up to 48bits, it may give
the impression the max IOVA is 48b while a device may have a
dma_mask of 42b. So this API cannot really be used to compute
the max usable IOVA.

This patch removes the IOVA region beyond the dma_mask's.
As we start to expose this reserved region in the sysfs file
/sys/kernel/iommu_groups/<n>/reserved_regions, we also need to
handle the IOVA range beyond the IOMMU aperture to handle the case
where the dma_mask would have a higher number of bits than the iommu
max input address.

This is a change to the ABI as this reserved region was not yet
exposed in sysfs /sys/kernel/iommu_groups/<n>/reserved_regions or
through the VFIO ioctl. At VFIO level we increment the version of
the VFIO_IOMMU_TYPE1_INFO_CAP_IOVA_RANGE capability to advertise
that change.

Best Regards
