The bitmap is already expose to the user via
vfio_iommu_type1_info.iova_pgsizes in the VFIO_IOMMU_GET_INFO ioctl.
Our original intention was to allow the user to specify the dirty
bitmap page size, which is still enabled in the ioctl via
bitmap.pgsize, but for simplification we currently only support the
smallest page size.  This could be something else we expose via the
extension interface when more page sizes are supported.  Thanks,
