RID_PASID field was introduced in VT-d 3.0 spec, it is used
for DMA requests w/o PASID in scalable mode VT-d. It is also
known as IOVA. And in VT-d 3.1 spec, there is definition on it:

"Implementations not supporting RID_PASID capability
(ECAP_REG.RPS is 0b), use a PASID value of 0 to perform
address translation for requests without PASID."

This patch adds a check against the PASIDs which are going to be
bound to device. For PASID #0, it is not necessary to pass down
pasid bind request for it since PASID #0 is used as RID_PASID for
DMA requests without pasid. Further reason is current Intel vIOMMU
supports gIOVA by shadowing guest 2nd level page table. However,
in future, if guest IOMMU driver uses 1st level page table to store
IOVA mappings, then guest IOVA support will also be done via nested
translation. When gIOVA is over FLPT, then vIOMMU should pass down
the pasid bind request for PASID #0 to host, host needs to bind the
guest IOVA page table to a proper PASID. e.g. PASID value in RID_PASID
field for PF/VF if ECAP_REG.RPS is clear or default PASID for ADI
(Assignable Device Interface in Scalable IOV solution).

IOVA over FLPT support on Intel VT-d:
