Hi Tom,

Shouldn't we be matching the mlp based on daddr instead of vaddr?  We
can have multiple dma address pointing at the same virtual address, so
dma address is the unique element.  I'm also nervous about this dm_list.
For qemu device assignment, we're potentially statically mapping many GB
of iova space.  It seems like this could get incredibly bloated and
slow.  Thanks,

Alex
