I believe the vfio_dma_map will return failure for an incorrect use.

Well, for now I don't think user can figure out. E.g. if we expose a vIOMMU with
48-bit IOVA capability, yet host only supports 39-bit IOVA, vfio shall return 
failure,
but the user does not know whose fault it is.

I guess on vfio attach? Will need more thinking in it.
