I really think brinding in TDISP muddies the waters a lot and
should be avoided. We simply won't know until someone does the
legwork and proposed the necessary spec extensions.

I feel this discussion will keep meandering because the terminology is
vague. There's no single thing that is called "passthrough" -
vendors just build what is expedient with current hardware and
software. Nvidia has a bunch of people working on vfio so they
call that passthrough, Red Hat has people working on VDPA and
they call that passthrough, etc.

Before I mute this discussion for good, does anyone here have any
feeling progress is made? What kind of progress?
