I didn't ask you to try to get my ACK before pushing the patches that
affect all the IOMMUs. I'll never ask for such.

I asked you to get the ACKs from the IOMMUs maintainers that your
patches affect.

If the IOMMUs maintainers who your patch affects agree on your patch,
I will not be against it even if I don't like it.

This time, you tried to add a generic parameter that would be useful
for VT-d, but seems that the VT-d maintainer is not ready for such
decision. Thus, I think that postponing adding the parameter was a
reasonable decision for everyone.

I also insisted that we need serious consideration about how all the
generic parameters interact with each other before changing them, but
again, if all the IOMMUs maintainers agree on a different plan, it's
fine by me.

Thanks very much.
