Subject: [PATCH v3 00/16] Shared virtual address IOMMU and VT-d support

Shared virtual address (SVA), a.k.a, Shared virtual memory (SVM) on Intel
platforms allow address space sharing between device DMA and applications.
SVA can reduce programming complexity and enhance security.
This series is intended to enable SVA virtualization, i.e. shared guest
application address space and physical device DMA address. Only IOMMU portion
of the changes are included in this series. Additional support is needed in
VFIO and QEMU (will be submitted separately) to complete this functionality.

To make incremental changes and reduce the size of each patchset. This series
does not inlcude support for page request services.

In VT-d implementation, PASID table is per device and maintained in the host.
Guest PASID table is shadowed in VMM where virtual IOMMU is emulated.

 - FL = First level/stage one page tables
 - SL = Second level/stage two page tables

This work is based on collaboration with other developers on the IOMMU
mailing list. Notably,

[1] [PATCH v6 00/22] SMMUv3 Nested Stage Setup by Eric Auger

[2] [RFC PATCH 2/6] drivers core: Add I/O ASID allocator by Jean-Philippe

[3] [RFC PATCH 0/5] iommu: APIs for paravirtual PASID allocation by Lu Baolu

[4] [PATCH v5 00/23] IOMMU and VT-d driver support for Shared Virtual
    Address (SVA)

There are roughly three parts:
1. Generic PASID allocator [1] with extension to support custom allocator
2. IOMMU cache invalidation passdown from guest to host
3. Guest PASID bind for nested translation

All generic IOMMU APIs are reused from [1], which has a v7 just published with
no real impact to the patches used here. It is worth noting that unlike sMMU
nested stage setup, where PASID table is owned by the guest, VT-d PASID table is
owned by the host, individual PASIDs are bound instead of the PASID table.

This series is based on the new VT-d 3.0 Specification (
This is different than the older series in [4] which was based on the older
specification that does not have scalable mode.

	- V3
	  - Addressed thorough review comments from Eric Auger (Thank you!)
	  - Moved IOASID allocator from driver core to IOMMU code per
	    suggestion by Christoph Hellwig
	  - Rebased on top of Jean's SVA API branch and Eric's v7[1]
	    (git:// sva/api)
	  - All IOMMU APIs are unmodified (except the new bind guest PASID
	    call in patch 9/16)

	- V2
	  - Rebased on Joerg's IOMMU x86/vt-d branch v5.1-rc4
	  - Integrated with Eric Auger's new v7 series for common APIs
	  - Addressed review comments from Andy Shevchenko and Alex Williamson on
	    IOASID custom allocator.
	  - Support multiple custom IOASID allocators (vIOMMUs) and dynamic
