I don't know anything about that VMID reservation feature. What is it
used for? Who is using it? How many VMIDs can be reserved?
If one VMID is reserved, there would still be one VMID left for video
post processing. That's not ideal, but I don't think it would be fatal.
But is it a realistic use case that VMID reservation and ROCm+video
processing would happen on the same system at the same time?
