Hi Avri
In addition to the above advantage of HPB device mode, would you please
share the performance comparison data with host mode? that will draw
more attention, since you mentioned "you tested on Galaxy S20, and
Xiaomi Mi10 pro", I think you have this kind of data.

Your HPB host driver sits in the ufs driver. Since my HPB host mode
driver is also implemented in the UFS driver layer, I did test my HPB
driver between device mode and host mode. Saw there is an improvement,
but not significant. If you can share your HPB drviver data, that will
be awesome.

Kind regards,
