Oh, sorry this paragraph in the cover letter is wrong now. We now rely
on the disable_acs_redir command line option introduced in

aaca43fda742 ("PCI: Add "pci=disable_acs_redir=" parameter for
peer-to-peer support")

Do you mean to test the patchset or the ACS bits you quoted?

Testing the patchset is a matter of having the right hardware (ie an
RDMA NIC and CMB enabled NVMe behind a PCIe switch, with the ACS bits
set correctly by the above command line option) and setting the p2pmem
configfs attribute in an nvme-of port to 'yes'.
