At this point you assume that your vfio_ap_mdev_group_notifier callback
was called with VFIO_GROUP_NOTIFY_SET_KVM and that you do have
matrix_mdev->kvm set up properly.

Based on how callbacks usually work this seems rather strange. It's
probably cleaner to set up he cyrcb (including all the validation
that needs to be done immediately before) in the callback
(vfio_ap_mdev_group_notifier).

If that is not viable I think we need a comment here explaining why is this
OK (at least).

Halil
