First of all, thank you for working on this. As you may have noticed I
sent a new RFC version yesterday (without including this). When time
allows, you may have a look at the comments I posted on your series. I
don't think I can test it at the moment so I may prefer to keep it
separate. Also be aware that the QEMU integration of nested has not
received much comments yet and is likely to evolve. The priority is to
get some R-b's on the kernel pieces, especially the SMMU part. With this
dependency resolved, things can't move forward I am afraid.
