Subject: [PATCH v2 2/2] iommu/vt-d: Enable PASID only if device expects PASID in PRG Response.

From: Kuppuswamy Sathyanarayanan <>

In Intel IOMMU, if the Page Request Queue (PRQ) is full, it will
automatically respond to the device with a success message as a keep
alive. And when sending the success message, IOMMU will include PASID in
the Response Message when the Page Request has a PASID in Request
Message and It does not check against the PRG Response PASID requirement
of the device before sending the response. Also, If the device receives the
PRG response with PASID when its not expecting it then the device behavior
is undefined. So enable PASID support only if device expects PASID in PRG
response message.
