That's why something that would have succeeded before will now fail:
Before this series, if user asked for a VFIO_IOMMU_TYPE1_NESTING, it would
have succeeded even if the SMMU didn't support stage-2, as the driver
would have silently fallen back on stage-1 mappings (which work exactly
the same as stage-2-only since there was no nesting supported). After the
series, we do check for DOMAIN_ATTR_NESTING so if user asks for
VFIO_IOMMU_TYPE1_NESTING and the SMMU doesn't support stage-2, the ioctl
fails.

I believe it's a good fix and completely harmless, but wanted to make sure
no one objects because it's an ABI change.

Thanks,
Jean
