Hi Alex,

This looks good to me ;-). That's a reasonable constraint for user behavior.

What about replacing this patch with an addition to the uapi document of
VFIO_GROUP_UNSET_CONTAINER? User should pay attention to this when call this
ioctl during dirty tracking.

And any comments on other patches? thanks.

Thanks.
Keqian
