This is not what this patch does ;-) It introduces a new IOMMU UAPI
struct that gives information about the nesting capabilities and
features. This struct is supposed to be returned by
iommu_domain_get_attr() with DOMAIN_ATTR_NESTING attribute parameter,
one a domain whose type has been set to DOMAIN_ATTR_NESTING.

As opposed to other IOMMU UAPI structs there is no union member at the
end. Also this struct is not documented in [PATCH v7 1/7] docs: IOMMU
user API. Shouldn't we align.

You may also consider to move this patch in Jacob's series for
consistency, thoughts?
