Hi Zhenhua,

I remember you mentioned iounmap will cause error inside
spin_lock_irqsave. Do you know why it happened now? And could you also
describe why avoid calling iounmap between
spin_lock_irqsave/unlock_irqsave is needed here and what's the status

I think other reviewer may want to know it too.
