Unfortunately for most systems, a simple start and end is not really
sufficient to describe the available IOVA space, there are often
reserved regions intermixed, so this is not really a complete
solution.  Shameer tried to solve this last year[1] but we ran into a
road block that Intel IGD devices impose a reserved range of IOVA
spaces reported to the user that conflict with existing assignment of
this device and we haven't figured out yet how to be more selective of
the enforcement of those reserved ranges.  Thanks,

Alex
