Hi Kevin,

Thanks for taking a look at this series.

As I understand, in case a hotplugged device results in an update to the valid
Iova ranges then the Qemu, vfio_connect_container() --> memory_listner_register()
will fail if there is a conflict as patch #4 checks for invalid dma map requests.

Not sure, your concern is preventing hotplug much before this happens or not.

Thanks,
Shameer
