Looks great from my point of view. I focused on patch 1 since I'm
planning to reuse iommu_dev_features for SVA. I don't have time to test
auxd and mdev on SMMUv3 at the moment but I had a better look and, if it
helps, for patches 1 and 7-9:

That said, are you planning to add back the mdev_get_iommu_domain()
function, in a separate patch? Because I think the parent driver still
needs a way to retrieve the PASID for an mdev?

Thanks,
Jean
