My understanding is that MSI's are 32bit memory writes and as such the SMMU
performs a 32bit write in response to the MSI. If so then what is different
with the Hi16xx that causes a problem? Have you been able to able to adjust
the layout of the arm_smmu_device struct to demonstrate this?

Thanks,

Andrew Murray
