And if you're going to use a PCI vendor ID subtype, maintain consistent
naming, VFIO_REGION_SUBTYPE_IBM_ZPCI_CLP or something. Ideally there'd
also be a reference to the struct provided through this region
otherwise it's rather obscure to find by looking for the call to
vfio_pci_register_dev_region() and ops defined for the region. I
wouldn't be opposed to defining the region structure here too rather
than a separate file, but I guess you're following the example set by
ccw.

I'm half tempted to suggest that this struct could be exposed directly
through an info capability, the trouble is where. It would be somewhat
awkward to pick an arbitrary BAR or config space region to expose this
info. The VFIO_DEVICE_GET_INFO ioctl could include it, but we don't
support capabilities on that return structure and I'm not sure it's
worth implementing versus the solution here. Just a thought. Thanks,

Alex
