The VFIO API was enhanced to support nested stage control: a bunch of
new iotcls, one DMA FAULT region and an associated specific IRQ.

Let's document the process to follow to set up nested mode.

+The DMA FAULT region exposes a VFIO_REGION_INFO_CAP_PRODUCER_FAULT

Nit: I don't see this capability in the code.


Thanks,
