SubjectRe: [PATCH v9 3/7] iommu/uapi: Introduce enum type for PASID data format
Hi Joerg,

I sent out v10 with Randy's comments addressed but I didn't change this
patch. Does my explanation below make sense? I am hoping to make it in
v5.10 since many other pieces depend on it, your guidance is much
appreciated.

Jacob
