No, immediately above that is:

if (index >= VFIO_PCI_NUM_REGIONS) {
int regnum = index - VFIO_PCI_NUM_REGIONS;
struct vfio_pci_region *region = vdev->region + regnum;

if (region && region->ops && region->ops->mmap &&
(region->flags & VFIO_REGION_INFO_FLAG_MMAP))
return region->ops->mmap(vdev, region, vma);
return -EINVAL;
}

We can have device specific regions that can support mmap, but those
regions aren't necessarily on-device memory so we can't assume they're
tied to the memory bit in the command register.

Yes.

Yes.

Ok, but how does this really help us, unless you're also proposing some
redesign of the memory_lock semaphore? Even if we're zapping all the
affected devices for a bus reset that doesn't eliminate that we still
require device level granularity for other events. Maybe there's some
layering of the inodes that you're implying that allows both, but it
still feels like a minor optimization if we need to traverse devices
for the memory_lock.

vfio_device is embedded in vfio.c, so that worries me.

Sure, that example would be a good simplification. I'm not sure see
other cases where we're going out of our way to manage the vfio_device
versus vfio_pci_device objects though. Thanks,

Alex
