Sure. Before that, let me sync my understanding with you. You have an
acpi namespace device in ANDD table, it also shows up in the device
scope of a RMRR. Current code doesn't enumerate that device for the
RMRR, hence iommu_create_device_direct_mappings() doesn't work for this

At the same time, probe_acpi_namespace_devices() doesn't work for this
device, hence you want to add a home-made
acpi_device_create_direct_mappings() helper.

Did I get it right?

The namespace device has been probed and put in one drhd's device list.
Hence, it should be processed by probe_acpi_namespace_devices(). So the
question is why there are no devices in addev->physical_node_list?
