I think the notification should not be left to the individual device.
Instead, the add notification should be done in pci_setup_sva_ops, and
the delete notification should be done in pci_qdev_unrealize, before
calling pc->exit, and only if dev->sva_ops is not NULL.

In general I think it's better to change your names from "assigned_dev"
to "sva_dev", because the point of the list is to only iterate over
devices that might be interested in using SVA.
