This seems like a new requirement altogether, and a bit outside the
scope of this series to be honest. Is the client userspace in this
context? I guess it would be mostly for prototyping then? Otherwise you
probably don't want to hand GPU contexts to userspace without an IOMMU
isolating them?

If you don't need mm tracking/sharing or iommu_map/unmap, then maybe an
IDR private to the GPU driver would be enough? If you do need mm
tracking, I suppose we could modify iommu_sva_bind() to allocate and
track io_mm even if the given device doesn't have an IOMMU, but it seems
a bit backward.

Thanks,
Jean
