title: Criteria of using VFIO mdev (vs. userspace DMA)

Content:
VFIO mdev provides a framework for subdevice assignment and reuses 
existing VFIO uAPI  to handle common passthrough-related requirements. 
However, subdevice (e.g. ADI defined in Intel Scalable IOV) might not be 
a PCI endpoint (e.g. just a work queue), thus requires some degree of 
emulation/mediation in kernel to fit into VFIO device API. Then there is 
a concern on putting emulation in kernel and how to judge abuse of 
mdev framework by simply using it as an easy path to hook into 
virtualization stack. An associated open is about differentiating mdev 
from userspace DMA framework (such as uacce), and whether building 
passthrough features on top of userspace DMA framework is a better 
choice than using mdev. 

Thanks
Kevin
