Hi Tomasz,

Thanks very much for you suggestion and explain so detail.
please help check below.

Thanks. I have move the spinlock into the smi driver, it will lock
for writing the local arbiter regsiter only.

As I noted in the function "mtk_iommu_hw_init":

/* protect memory,HW will write here while translation fault */
protectpa = __virt_to_phys(piommu->protect_va);

We don’t care the content of this buffer, It is ok even though its
data is dirty.
It seem to be a the protect memory. While a translation fault
happened, The iommu HW will overwrite here instead of writing to the
fault physical address which may be 0 or some random address.

Thanks. I have read it. I will delete it and print the error info
in the ISR. Also call the report_iommu_fault in the ISR.
