You are correct, this check is performed to prevent comparing an mdev to
itself, I'll improve the comment.

I don't see how this is possible.

The function above is called from two places: the
vfio_ap_mdev_validate_masks()
function which is invoked when an adapter or domain is assigned to the
mdev; and the
vfio_ap_mdev_resource_in_use() function which is a callback registered
with the
AP bus and is called by the bus when the apmask/aqmask are changed.

In the former case, the addresses passed in are from the apm/aqm fields
within
the ap_matrix structure. Each ap_matrix structure is a field contained
within an
ap_matrix_mdev structure, it is not a pointer to storage allocated
external to
the matrix_mdev, so the apm/aqm addresses passed in from the
vfio_ap_mdev_validate_masks() function will be unique to each
ap_matrix_mdev
structure.

In the latter case, the addresses are passed in by the AP bus and are
allocated by the
bus and would definitely not be contained within an ap_matrix_mdev since
the AP bus
doesn't even have access to that structure.
