yeah, this is more of a workaround than a real fix, because IIUC
unassigned PCI address makes sense for devices within one IOMMU group. I
mean, you want to passthrough one specific PCI device but because it's
in IOMMU group with another one, both have to be detached from the host.

Well, and for that we would need the hotplug/hotunplug API understand
that and attach/detach two or more devices at once. With my patches you
can still hotplug/hotunplug just a single device, but hey, at least we
don't error out!
