Yes, I suppose vhost DMAR patches will be based upon this one. I can
postpone this patch until Jason wants to pick it up, but it actually
does not hurt if we just enable it now, anyway no one is using it.
So... I see no bad to merge this along with the series, so that we can
reduce one entry from Jason's TODO list. :)
