Here's the second spin of my preferred approach to handling grouping
of devices for safe assignment to guests.
Changes since v1:
* Many name changes and file moves for improved consistency
* Bugfixes and cleanups
* The interface to the next layer up is considerably fleshed out,
although it still needs work.
* Example initialization of groups for p5ioc2 and p7ioc.
* Need sample initialization of groups for intel and/or amd iommus
* Use of sysfs attributes to control group permission is probably a
mistake. Although it seems a bit odd, registering a chardev for
each group is probably better, because perms can be set from udev
rules, just like everything else.
* Need more details of what the binder structure will need to
* Handle complete removal of groups.
* Clarify what will need to happen on the hot unplug path.
