What do you do with this information? Suppose some device tells you it
supports some limited range, say, from 0x40000000 to 0x80000000. What
does qemu do with this information?

For qemu, when qemu will fail the vDPA device creation when:

1) vIOMMU is not enabled and GPA is out of this range
2) vIOMMU is enabled but it can't report such range to guest

For other userspace application, it will know it can only use this range as its IOVA.
