idxd isn't a vfio_pci so it would be improper to do something like
that here anyhow.

Why do you need more layers?

Just make some helper functions to manage this and build them into
their own struct and function family. All this needs is some callback
to for the end driver to hook in the raw device programming and some
entry points to direct the emulation access to the module.

It should be fully self contained and completely unrelated to vfio_pci
