As all vfio_cfgs need to map all dpdk segments for DMA, but now only
default_vfio_cfg map it. This patch changes rte_vfio_setup_device()
as a default map, so that IOMMU progrming does notneed to map dpdk
segments separately.

I'm pretty sure this was intentional. The other containers were supposed 
to call DMA maps manually. That said, i would probably ask the original 
submitter for the multi-container feature as i have only a vague idea of 
usages for this API.

+Zhihong, as that's the closest i could find to a maintainer for this 
functionality :)

Anatoly is correct, this is intentional for ifc vdpa. For vdpa/ifc, we need another vfio container
for vdpa device and the dma map info comes from QEMU/virtio-user, so this container will not use dpdk
memsegs. Your patch will break current ifc vdpa driver.

Thanks,
Chenbo
