When you talk about KVM, is it for

  [PATCH 0/7] x86: tag application address space for devices

or something else as well? (I don't see mentions of KVM in that series)

I was rather seeing IOASID as the end of the VFIO-IOMMU-IOASID chain,
putting it in the middle complicates locking. If you only need to FREE
notifier for this calse, maybe VFIO could talk directly to the IOMMU
driver before freeing an IOASID?  gpasid_unbind() should already clear the
PASID contexts, no?

Thanks,
Jean
