Shared virtual address (SVA), a.k.a, Shared virtual memory (SVM) on Intel
platforms allow address space sharing between device DMA and applications.
SVA can reduce programming complexity and enhance security.
This series is intended to expose SVA capability to VMs. i.e. shared guest
application address space with passthru devices. The whole SVA virtualization
requires QEMU/VFIO/IOMMU changes. This series includes the QEMU changes, for
VFIO and IOMMU changes, they are in separate series (listed in the "Related

The high-level architecture for SVA virtualization is as below:

    .-------------.  .---------------------------.
    |   vIOMMU    |  | Guest process CR3, FL only|
    |             |  '---------------------------'
    | PASID Entry |--- PASID cache flush -
    '-------------'                       |
    |             |                       V
    |             |                CR3 in GPA
------| Shadow |--------------------------|--------
      v        v                          v
    .-------------.  .----------------------.
    |   pIOMMU    |  | Bind FL for GVA-GPA  |
    |             |  '----------------------'
    .----------------/  |
    | PASID Entry |     V (Nested xlate)
    |             |   |SL for GPA-HPA, default domain|
    |             |   '------------------------------'
 - FL = First level/stage one page tables
 - SL = Second level/stage two page tables

There are roughly four parts:
1. Introduce PCIPASIDOps to PCIDevice to support PASID related operations
2. Passdown PASID allocation and free to host
3. Passdown guest PASID binding to host
4. Passdown guest IOMMU cache invalidation to host
