Thanks Stephen, sorry about the extra work. The virtio-iommu driver was
helpfully added to the vhost tree to ensure it doesn't break anything,
but since Joerg has some reservations, only the hyper-v change will be
merged in v5.1. I'd welcome a change of heart however, in which case the
driver should probably go via the iommu tree to avoid conflicts.
