SubjectRE: [PATCH v5 0/7] vfio/type1: Add support for valid iova list management

GET_INFO is done at initialization time which is good for cold attached
devices. If a hotplugged device may cause change of valid iova ranges
at run-time, then there could be potential problem (which however is
difficult for user space or orchestration stack to figure out in advance)
Can we do some extension like below to make hotplug case cleaner?

- An interface allowing user space to request VFIO rejecting further
attach_group if doing so may cause iova range change. e.g. Qemu can
do such request once completing initial GET_INFO;

- or an event notification to user space upon change of valid iova
ranges when attaching a new device at run-time. It goes one step
further - even attach may cause iova range change, it may still
succeed as long as Qemu hasn't allocated any iova in impacted
range

Thanks
