I think this should be a kconfig, historically we've required kconfig
to opt-in to unsafe things that could violate kernel security. Someone
building a secure boot trusted kernel system should not have an
options for userspace to just turn off protections.

So this is basically the dmabuf, I think it would be simple enough to
go in here and change it down the road if someone had interest.

The device_put keeps the device from becoming unregistered, but what
happens during the hot reset case? Is this what the cover letter
was talking about? CPU access is revoked but P2P is still possible?

Feels a bit strange that the vfio_dma isn't linked to the pfnmap_obj
instead of searching the entire list?

I'd prefer this was written a bit differently, I would like it very
much if this doesn't mis-use follow_pte() by returning pfn outside
the lock.

vaddr_get_bar_pfn(..)
{
vma = find_vma_intersection(mm, vaddr, vaddr + 1);
if (!vma)
return -ENOENT;
if ((vma->vm_flags & VM_DENYWRITE) && (prot & PROT_WRITE)) // Check me
return -EFAULT;
device = vfio_device_get_from_vma(vma);
if (!device)
return -ENOENT;

/*
* Now do the same as vfio_pci_mmap_fault() - the vm_pgoff must
* be the physical pfn when using this mechanism. Delete follow_pte entirely()
*/
pfn = (vaddr - vma->vm_start)/PAGE_SIZE + vma->vm_pgoff

/* de-dup device and record that we are using device's pages in the
pfnmap */
...
}

This would be significantly better if it could do whole ranges instead
of page at a time.
