I think we should just forbid this, so long as the device_fd is open
the iommu_fd cannot be destroyed and there is no way to detact a
device other than closing its Fd.

revoke is tricky enough to implement we should avoid it.

The main decision here is to decide if the uAPI should have some way to
indicate that a device does not have its own unique IOASID but is
sharing with the group
