I'm not the one requesting this change, but I'm guessing you should add a
comment in this header, above pgsize_bitmap (which should actually be
called page_size_mask to follow the spec). I guess I'd add:

/* Same format as virtio_iommu_config::page_size_mask */

for this field, and then maybe change the comment of virtio_iommu_config,
currently "/* Supported page sizes */", to something more precise such as:

/*
 * Bitmap of supported page sizes. The least significant bit indicates the
 * smallest granularity and the other bits are hints indicating optimal
 * block sizes.
 */

But I don't know how much should be spelled out here, since those details
are available in the spec.

Thanks,
Jean
