FWIW, I don't really have a strong opinion here but I welcome the
discussion.  It seems fair to me that a PCI vendor type could be used
for either a device with that vendor ID or by the vendor of the
platform.  We've got a lot of address space if want to use
VFIO_REGION_TYPE_IBM_ZDEV rather than a PCI vendor type (so long as
it's updated not to conflict with the GFX type).  Thanks,

Alex
