Thanks for pointing this comment. Indeed sMMU is not mandatory, and at first sight I agree we should remove the restriction introduced by the patch.
Driver porting on the series should be done before adding this.

I don't remember it was implemented like described.

I have remarks about the comment:
"* We will always use @da to negotiate the device addresses, even if it
* isn't using an iommu. In that case, though, it will obviously contain
* physical addresses."

When there is no sMMU, we can't consider that da contains a physical address because coprocessor can have its own memory map just because it is a 32bit processor accessing only a part of the memory and the main is 64bit one. The 2 processors won't see the internal memory at the same base address for example.

So what should we do when carveout allocated by host is not fitting with resource table request?
- put a warning and overwrite da address in the resource table?
- stop rproc probe as no match detected?

Later in the series, carveout allocation is changed. Resource table carveout are either linked with an existing carveout registered by driver or added to carveout list for allocations.
In the case you described, TI driver should first register the specific carveout regions thank to the helper.

Regards,
Loic
