Subject: Re: [PATCH v2 15/23] x86/recstrl: Add per-rmid arch private storage

resctrl_arch_rmid_read() does not exist at this point and is also not 
introduced in this patch.

Could you please replace mbm with MBM throughout the series?

When following kerneldoc please use "Return:" to indicate the return 
section. It will help to run scripts/kernel-doc on these changes to make 
sure no new kernel-doc issues are introduced.

Proper cleanup on error should be done in this function. Please do not 
use domain_free() as cleanup for what can be done in this function. I 
see domain_free() as the higher level error control ... like when a 
wrapper function calls arch_domain_mbm_alloc() and then something else 
fails after that ... then domain_free() would be that higher level error 
handling.

Missing a ":"?
Please do not use "we".

This is a description of a struct ... can the doc elaborate on what 
"this RMID" means?
