[ Upstream commit 11f5acce2fa43b015a8120fa7620fa4efd0a2952 ]

We store 2 multilevel tables in iommu_table - one for the hardware and
one with the corresponding userspace addresses. Before allocating
the tables, the iommu_table_group_ops::get_table_size() hook returns
the combined size of the two and VFIO SPAPR TCE IOMMU driver adjusts
the locked_vm counter correctly. When the table is actually allocated,
the amount of allocated memory is stored in iommu_table::it_allocated_size
and used to decrement the locked_vm counter when we release the memory
used by the table; .get_table_size() and .create_table() calculate it
independently but the result is expected to be the same.

However the allocator does not add the userspace table size to
.it_allocated_size so when we destroy the table because of VFIO PCI
unplug (i.e. VFIO container is gone but the userspace keeps running),
we decrement locked_vm by just a half of size of memory we are

To make things worse, since we enabled on-demand allocation of
indirect levels, it_allocated_size contains only the amount of memory
actually allocated at the table creation time which can just be a
fraction. It is not a problem with incrementing locked_vm (as
get_table_size() value is used) but it is with decrementing.

As the result, we leak locked_vm and may not be able to allocate more
IOMMU tables after few iterations of hotplug/unplug.

This sets it_allocated_size in the pnv_pci_ioda2_ops::create_table()
hook to what pnv_pci_ioda2_get_table_size() returns so from now on we
have a single place which calculates the maximum memory a table can
occupy. The original meaning of it_allocated_size is somewhat lost now

We do not ditch it_allocated_size whatsoever here and we do not call
get_table_size() from vfio_iommu_spapr_tce.c when decrementing
locked_vm as we may have multiple IOMMU groups per container and even
though they all are supposed to have the same get_table_size()
implementation, there is a small chance for failure or confusion.
