If caching mode is supported, the hardware will cache
none-present or erroneous translation entries. Hence,
software should explicitly invalidate the PASID cache
after a PASID table entry becomes present. We should
issue such invalidation with the PASID value that we
have changed. PASID 0 is not reserved for this case.
