Hello Lorenzo,

I agree, if we want to change this so that the MSI address is guaranteed
to be in the first 4 GB (since some PCIe endpoints only support 32-bit
MSI), we should do so in a separate patch.

Further more, according to the discussion you linked, any such patch
should consider using GFP_DMA instead of GFP_DMA32, since the
ZONE_DMA32 to ZONE_DMA fallback (in case CONFIG_ZONE_DMA32 is not
set) seems to be broken (and has been for several years).

I will submit a new patch set version where I drop GFP_DMA32.


Regards,
Niklas
