I just implemented dynamically updating the iommu table to support pass-through,
It seen to work fine.

Test:
start a 4G vm with 2M hugetlb and ixgbevf passthrough, 
    GuestOS: linux-5.2.6 + 	(mm / virtio: Provide support for free page reporting)
    HostOS: 5.5-rc4
    Host: Intel(R) Xeon(R) Gold 6161 CPU @ 2.20GHz 

after enable page hinting, free pages at GuestOS can be free at host. 


before,
 # cat /sys/devices/system/node/node*/hugepages/hugepages-2048kB/free_hugepages 
 5620
 5620
after start VM,
 # numastat -c qemu

 Per-node process memory usage (in MBs)
 PID              Node 0 Node 1 Total
 ---------------  ------ ------ -----
 24463 (qemu_hotr      6      6    12
 24479 (qemu_tls_      0      8     8
 70718 (qemu-syst     58    539   597
 ---------------  ------ ------ -----
 Total                64    553   616
 # cat /sys/devices/system/node/node*/hugepages/hugepages-2048kB/free_hugepages 
 5595
 5366

the modify at qemu,
 +int kvm_discard_range(struct kvm_discard_msg discard_msg)  
 +{
 +    return kvm_vm_ioctl(kvm_state, KVM_DISCARD_RANGE, &discard_msg);
 +}

 static void virtio_balloon_handle_report(VirtIODevice *vdev, VirtQueue *vq)
 {
            ..................
 +           discard_msg.in_addr = elem->in_addr[i];
 +           discard_msg.iov_len = elem->in_sg[i].iov_len;

            ram_block_discard_range(rb, ram_offset, size);
 +           kvm_discard_range(discard_msg);

then, further test network bandwidth, performance seem ok.
 
Is there any hidden problem in this implementation?
And, is there plan to support pass-throughyour?
