If you still want to post separately - I'm thinking whether it'll be
good you put the vfio changes into the 2nd virt-sva series, since that
looks more like in that category. Or say, we can introduce
SVAOps/PASIDOps, we implement more vIOMMU invalidation request
handling, we call it in IOMMU code, but we don't implement any of the
device (vfio) that provide that ops.
Or maybe we can just post the whole stuff altogether, since after all
these two series are still closely related IMHO (e.g., the SVAOps
definition should be closely related to how the first vfio user would
like to use it).
Only my two cents, and I don't know how other people think. It's up
to you after all. :)
