SubjectRe: [PATCH v6 26/34] iommu/amd: Allow the AMD IOMMU to work with memory encryption

Yes please - the less needlessly global symbols, the better.

And I don't think c->microcode is not set by the time we init the iommu
because, AFAICT, we do the latter in pci_iommu_init() and that's a
rootfs_initcall() which happens later then the CPU init stuff.

Something like this maybe?

if (rev >= 0x1205)
return true;

if (rev <= 0x11ff && rev >= 0x1126)
return true;

return false;

Do you mean this is like the last exception case in that document above:

"
- Pointers to data structures in coherent memory which might be modified
by I/O devices can, sometimes, legitimately be volatile. A ring buffer
used by a network adapter, where that adapter changes pointers to
indicate which descriptors have been processed, is an example of this
type of situation."

?

If so, it did work fine until now, without the volatile. Why is it
needed now, all of a sudden?
