Hi Bharat,

Could you Cc me on your next posting?  Unfortunately I don't have much
hardware for testing this at the moment, but I might be able to help a
little on the review.

You might get this from the iova_pgsize bitmap returned by
VFIO_IOMMU_GET_INFO. The virtio config.page_size_mask is global so there
is the usual problem of aggregating consistent properties, but I'm
guessing using the host page size as a granule here is safe enough. 

If it is a problem, we can add a PROBE property for page size mask,
allowing to define per-endpoint page masks. I have kernel patches
somewhere to do just that.

Thanks,
Jean
