Yes, that's correct - the size of the BAR is not a multiple of the
page size which leads to the error. If this BAR is mapped into the
guest's address space then it will "leak" an additional 3K into the
guest (since the minimum nested mapping is 4KB in size).
It is hard to fix this in the general case if you want to truly
passthrough the BAR to the guest.
