Lu Baolu - Jan. 10, 2019, 3 a.m.
A parent device might create different types of mediated
devices. For example, a mediated device could be created
by the parent device with full isolation and protection
provided by the IOMMU. One usage case could be found on
Intel platforms where a mediated device is an assignable
subset of a PCI, the DMA requests on behalf of it are all
tagged with a PASID. Since IOMMU supports PASID-granular
translations (scalable mode in VT-d 3.0), this mediated
device could be individually protected and isolated by an

This patch adds a new member in the struct mdev_device to
indicate that the mediated device represented by mdev could
be isolated and protected by attaching a domain to a device
represented by mdev->iommu_device. It also adds a helper to
add or set the iommu device.

* mdev_device->iommu_device
  - This, if set, indicates that the mediated device could
    be fully isolated and protected by IOMMU via attaching
    an iommu domain to this device. If empty, it indicates
    using vendor defined isolation, hence bypass IOMMU.

* mdev_set/get_iommu_device(dev, iommu_device)
  - Set or get the iommu device which represents this mdev
    in IOMMU's device scope. Drivers don't need to set the
    iommu device if it uses vendor defined isolation.
