Thealgorithm would have to know about both (all) bus masters and theirstream IDs for a specific SMMU. If the algorithm operates on the set ofstream IDs for one bus master at a time the algorithm has no way ofknowing which bits can be ignored since it doesn't know the value of theother stream IDs for the other bus masters and thus could potentiallycreate a mask that could cause a stream ID to match in two differententries.>> I am not familiar with Andreas's proposal.

Idon't think that will work.Thanks,Olav Haugan-- The Qualcomm Innovation Center, Inc. is a member of Code Aurora Forum,hosted by The Linux Foundation`
