[PATCH v4 0/5] iommu/vt-d: Add page request draining support

When a PASID is stopped or terminated, there can be pending PRQs
(requests that haven't received responses) in the software and
remapping hardware. The pending page requests must be drained
so that the pasid could be reused. The chapter 7.10 in the VT-d
specification specifies the software steps to drain pending page
requests and responses.

This includes two parts:
 - PATCH 1/4 ~ 2/4: refactor the qi_submit_sync() to support multiple
   descriptors per submission which will be used in the following
 - PATCH 3/4 ~ 4/4: add page request drain support after a pasid entry
   is torn down.

Best regards,

Change log:
  - Remove prq drain in mm notifier;
  - Set PASID FPD bit when pasid is cleared in mm notifier and clear
    it in unbound().

  - Address Kevin's review comments
    - Squash the first 2 patches together;
    - The prq thread is serialized, no need to consider reentrance;
    - Ensure no new-coming prq before drain prq in queue;
    - Handle page request overflow case.

  - Fix race between multiple prq handling threads.
