Sorry for the misunderstanding.
The PRI mode patches is in RFC even no hardware for testing, so I thought it's fine for "Stall mode" patches sent as RFC.
We have tested the Stall mode on our platform.
Anyway, I should confirm with you in advance.

Btw, Would you consider the "stall mode" upstream at first? Since there is no hardware for testing the PRI mode.
(We can provide you the hardware which support SMMU stall mode if necessary.)

Any comment on this?
The ACPI IORT spec may need be updated?
