I don't understand this.  It seems to indicate an ordering of device
tables vs. collection tables.  What is that?

I thought the point was that you'd want to save the valid table, and not
save the other one.

So, aren't we looking for something like this:

	ret = vgic_its_save_device_tables(its);
	if (ret < 0)
		goto out;
 
	ret = vgic_its_save_collection_table(its);


Thanks,
