For VT-d, it is essentially the same flow except managed by the individual
drivers such as DSA.
If free() happens before unbind(), we deactivate the PASIDs and suppress
faults from the device. When the unbind finally comes, we finalize the
PASID teardown. It seems we have a need for an intermediate state where
PASID is "pending free"?
