Yes, seems the most reasonable.
In this case I need to share the structure definition between:
userspace through vfio.h
vfio_iommu (this is obvious)
s390_iommu

It is this third include which made me doubt.
But when you re formulate it it looks the more reasonable because there
are much less changes.

Thanks for the help, I start this way, still wait one day or two to see
if any comment against this solution comes and send the update.

Thanks,
Pierre
