Subject: [PATCH v2 2/4] vhost-vdpa: reset vendor specific mapping to initial state in .release

Devices with on-chip IOMMU or vendor specific IOTLB implementation
may need to restore iotlb mapping to the initial or default state
using the .reset_map op, as it's desirable for some parent devices
to solely manipulate mappings by its own, independent of virtio device
state. For instance, device reset does not cause mapping go away on
such IOTLB model in need of persistent mapping. Before vhost-vdpa
is going away, give them a chance to reset iotlb back to the initial
state in vhost_vdpa_cleanup().
