It would also be nice to explain why a GPU driver needs a hypervisor
specific shim like this in the first place.

        enum hypervisor_type type;
        int (*host_init)(struct device *dev, void *gvt, const void *ops);
        void (*host_exit)(struct device *dev, void *gvt);
        int (*attach_vgpu)(void *vgpu, unsigned long *handle);
        void (*detach_vgpu)(void *vgpu);

Doesn't vfio provide all this generically with notifiers?

        int (*inject_msi)(unsigned long handle, u32 addr, u16 data);

Isn't this one just an eventfd?

        unsigned long (*from_virt_to_mfn)(void *p);
        int (*read_gpa)(unsigned long handle, unsigned long gpa, void *buf,
                        unsigned long len);
        int (*write_gpa)(unsigned long handle, unsigned long gpa, void *buf,
                         unsigned long len);
        unsigned long (*gfn_to_mfn)(unsigned long handle, unsigned long gfn);

        int (*dma_map_guest_page)(unsigned long handle, unsigned long gfn,
                                  unsigned long size, dma_addr_t *dma_addr);
        void (*dma_unmap_guest_page)(unsigned long handle, dma_addr_t dma_addr);

        int (*dma_pin_guest_page)(unsigned long handle, dma_addr_t dma_addr);

        int (*map_gfn_to_mfn)(unsigned long handle, unsigned long gfn,
                              unsigned long mfn, unsigned int nr, bool map);
        bool (*is_valid_gfn)(unsigned long handle, unsigned long gfn);

Shouldn't the vfio page SW IOMMU do all of this generically?

        int (*enable_page_track)(unsigned long handle, u64 gfn);
        int (*disable_page_track)(unsigned long handle, u64 gfn);
        int (*set_trap_area)(unsigned long handle, u64 start, u64 end,
                             bool map);
        int (*set_opregion)(void *vgpu);
        int (*set_edid)(void *vgpu, int port_num);

edid depends on hypervisor??

        int (*get_vfio_device)(void *vgpu);
        void (*put_vfio_device)(void *vgpu);
