For FL gIOVA case, gPASID is always 0. If a physical device is passed
through, hPASID is also 0; If an mdev device (representing an ADI)
instead, hPASID would be the PASID corresponding to the ADI. The
simulation software (i.e. QEMU) maintains a map between gPASID and
hPASID.

I second Ashok's idea. We don't need to distinguish these two cases in
the api and handle page request interrupt in guest as an unrecoverable
one.

Yes. Thanks!
