Yes, that is a good point.

So like this:

 int vfio_register_group_dev(struct vfio_device *device)
 {
+       if (!dev_is_dma_coherent(device->dev))
+               return -EINVAL;
+
        return __vfio_register_dev(device,
                vfio_group_find_or_alloc(device->dev));
 }

I fixed it up.

Thanks,
Jason
