SubjectRE: [PATCH 5/5] iommu: Add DOMAIN_ATTR_WINDOWS domain attribute
DOMAIN_ATTR_PAMU_ENABLE is required to enable a particular DMA window. My point is about the domain geometry, which is incomplete in case of PAMU without the number of subwindows. Geometry parameters are used for initializing the PAMU window settings. Individual subwindows can only be enabled, once the PAMU window has been initialized using the geometry settings.
