I generally prefer the vfio interface to be more self sufficient, if
there are regions the IOMMU cannot map, we should be describing those
via capabilities on the container through the vfio interface.  If we're
just scraping together things from sysfs, the user can just as easily
do that and provide an explicit memory map for the VM taking the
devices into account.  Of course having a device associated with a
restricted memory map that conflicts with the default memory map for
the VM implies that you can never support hot-add of such devices.
Please cc me on vfio related patches.  Thanks,
