I think this depends on iommu driver. I noticed current SMMU driver doesn't check physical IOMMU about nesting capability. So I guess the SET_IOMMU would still work for SMMU. but it will fail as you mentioned in prior email, userspace will check the nesting info and would fail as it gets an empty struct from host. https://lore.kernel.org/kvm/20200716153959.GA447208@myrica/ > > I believe it's a good fix and completely harmless, but wanted to make sure > no one objects because it's an ABI change. yes.
