Hi Jean,

Sorry for the late reply, been trying to redesign the notification part.

much better.

for vt-d, the per vm token (preferrably mm) will be used by kvm to
manage its PASID translation table.
when kvm receives a notification about a new guest-host PASID mapping,
it needs to know which vm it belongs to. So if mm is used as token,
both vfio and kvm can identify PASID ownership.

Sounds good. still pass a token. Thanks for the idea.
