SubjectRe: [RFC 1/3] mm: iommu: An API to unify IOMMU, CPU and device memory management
Thank you for the corrections. I'm correcting them now. Some responses:

I used size_t because I wanted to allow the start_addr the same range
as len. Is there a better type to use? I see 'unsigned long' used
throughout the mm code. Perhaps that's better for both the start_addr
and len.

Sure.

I'll add the deassociate call to the example.

I'll add it here too.
