Hi All:

This series introduces API for reporing IOVA range. This is a must for
userspace to work correclty:

- for the process that uses vhost-vDPA directly to properly allocate
- for VM(qemu), when vIOMMU is not enabled, fail early if GPA is out
  of range
- for VM(qemu), when vIOMMU is enabled, determine a valid guest
  address width

Please review.

Changes from V1:

- do not mandate get_iova_range() for device with its own DMA
  translation logic and assume a [0, ULLONG_MAX] range
- mandate IOVA range only for IOMMU that forcing aperture
- forbid the map which is out of the IOVA range in vhost-vDPA


Jason Wang (3):
  vdpa: introduce config op to get valid iova range
  vhost: vdpa: report iova range
  vdpa_sim: implement get_iova_range()
