Looks pretty slick.  I won't claim it's fully gelled in my head yet,
but AIUI you're creating these inodes on your new pseudo fs and
associating it via the actual user fd via the f_mapping pointer, which
allows multiple fds to associate and address space back to this inode
when you want to call unmap_mapping_range().  That clarifies from the
previous email how we'd store the inode on the vfio_device without
introducing yet another tracking list for device fds.  I'll try to
piece together something similar for vfio, especially if we can avoid
that nasty lock switcheroo we copied from
uverbs_user_mmap_disassociate().  Thanks,

Alex
