Yes, I agree free all pasids of a guest is a useful interface. Since all
PASIDs under one VM is already tracked by an IOASID set with its XArray,
I don't see a need to track again in VFIO.

Shall we only free one & free all? IMHO, free range isn't that useful
and not really symmetric to PASID allocation in that allocation is one
at a time.

Can we just add a new flag, e.g.  VFIO_IOMMU_FREE_ALL_PASID, and
ignored th range in free?
