yes, similar.

got it.

oops, I guess he somehow missed. you may find it in below link.

oh, yes.

I think it's just a software capability exposed to userspace, on
userspace side, it has a choice to use it or not. :-) The reason
define it and report it in cap nesting is that I'd like to make
the pasid alloc/free be available just for IOMMU with type
VFIO_IOMMU_TYPE1_NESTING. Please feel free tell me if it is not
good for ARM. We can find a proper way to report the availability.

ok, I was believing it may be possible on ARM or so. :-) will
rename it.

I'll refine the patch per your above comments.
