It's not a must IMO, some .set_map() user for e.g. VDUSE or vdpa-sim-blk 
can deliberately choose to implement .reset_map() depending on its own 
need. Those user_va software devices mostly don't care about mapping 
cost during reset, as they don't have to pin kernel memory in general. 
It's just whether or not they care about mapping being decoupled from 
device reset at all.

And the exact implementation requirement of this interface has been 
documented right below.
