Subject: [PATCH v4 01/22] driver core: add per device iommu param

From: Jacob Pan <>

DMA faults can be detected by IOMMU at device level. Adding a pointer
to struct device allows IOMMU subsystem to report relevant faults
back to the device driver for further handling.
For direct assigned device (or user space drivers), guest OS holds
responsibility to handle and respond per device IOMMU fault.
Therefore we need fault reporting mechanism to propagate faults beyond
IOMMU subsystem.

There are two other IOMMU data pointers under struct device today, here
we introduce iommu_param as a parent pointer such that all device IOMMU
data can be consolidated here. The idea was suggested here by Greg KH
and Joerg. The name iommu_param is chosen here since iommu_data has been used.
