SubjectRe: [RFC 0/6] iommu: generic api migration and grouping
From
Hi,

Good approach.
CC'ed the Samsung IOMMU developer. Marek.

BTW, Russell wants to use the DMA based IOMMU?

Please see the RFC patch, ARM: DMA-mapping & IOMMU integration
http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-mm/msg19856.html

Thank you,
Kyungmin Park
