Well I'm not an expert on this topic. Felix can probably tell you a bit 
more about that.

Maybe it is sufficient to keep the allocated PASIDs as small as possible 
and return an appropriate error if a device can't deal with the 
allocated number.

If a device can only deal with 12bit PASIDs and more than 2^12 try to 
use it there isn't much else we can do than returning an error anyway.

Regards,
Christian.
