> I don't see how it could. Versions post-4.5 will have VFIO_NOIOMMU_IOMMU, so no issue there. Pre-4.5 versions, whether they do or do not have VFIO_NOIOMMU_IOMMU defined, will have RTE_VFIO_NOIOMMU defined as 8 regardless.
Are we sure it will ever be backported as 8?
Anyway I think it's better to avoid version number checks.
What happens if the feature is reverted from 4.5 as it was from 4.4?
