Surely this is something you can change by letting the underlying driver
know when to coalesce this things and when not to? Frankly, this looks a
lot like what the GICv3 ITS does when you have device aliasing. It knows
you're using the same global identifier for a different purpose because:

- the upper layer tells it what ID to use
- the lower layer tracks what IDs are already in use

This involves tracking, refcounting, but I don't think that's out of the
realm of possible things.

If problems were solved easily, they wouldn't be problems... :-/

And I'll continue saying that this isn't a practical option. You're
breaking so many existing assumption it is not even funny. I'm not going
to prevent you from doing so, but if you do, the API has to be robust
for the existing use cases. What you've proposed so far isn't.

Thanks,
