VFIO provides a framework for secure userspace device drivers.
Why are we basing this on specific IOMMU drivers in the first place?
Only ARM is doing that. Shouldn't IOMMU_API only be enabled for ARM
targets that support it and therefore we can forget about the specific
IOMMU drivers? Thanks,
Makes sense - the majority of ARM systems (and mobile/embedded ARM64
ones) making use of IOMMU_API won't actually support VFIO, but it can't
hurt to allow them to select the type 1 driver regardless. Especially as
multiplatform configs are liable to be pulling in the SMMU driver(s) anyway.
