When we run dpdk vdpa in the nested virtual machine vm-L1 and ping
test in vm-L2, the ping is NG. The reason for troubleshooting is
that the virtio net in vm-L2 sends control information to the vring,
and the qemu back-end device in vm-L1 cannot obtain correct data
from the vring. This problem is related to the opening of the vIOMMU.

This patch add option '--iommu-support' to use guest vIOMMU to
protect vhost, then the ping test in vm-L2 is OK.
This option is required in a nested virtualization environment.

NG == not good? Please don't use abbreviations.

I'm wondering whether the flag shouldn't just be set by default, as the
feature negotiation will be done between the vDPA driver & the guest
driver anyways?

Yes, I will pay attention to this later.

Yes, It can be set by default rather than as an option. 
VIRTIO_F_IOMMU_PLATFORM feature will not be negotiated successfully if 
it is not in a nested virtualization environment.

I will simplify the patch.

Thanks.
