Just to add some details. We introduced IOASID notifier such that when
VFIO frees a PASID, consumers such as IOMMU, can do the cleanup
therefore ensure free always succeeds.

This was not in my v9 set as I was considering some race conditions
w.r.t. registering notifier, gets notifications, and free call. I will
post it in v10.

Thanks,

Jacob
