Yes, it still lacks verification for SID. Currently there are two
ways to implement it. One is to use MemAttrs and provide
write_with_attrs() rather than write(). The other one is to keep
using write(), but instead passing in VTDAddressSpace rather than
IntelIOMMUState when init each IR memory region:

If to use the above method, we'll need no scheme change. But now
since MemAttrs is ready (it's ready, right?), maybe I should start
to use it, which is the standard way to do.

Thanks to point out. Will make the change in v6.
