SubjectAW: [PATCH][next] iommu/mediatek: Fix unsigned domid comparison with less than zero
Date
I second that ...

Having i unsigned violates the rule of "least surprise".
If you need it unsigned make it clearly visible, also adding
a simple comment may help.

iova_region_nr is either 1 or 5 so unsigned doesn't matter.

I once almost introduced a bug where the iterator was supposed to be
size_t. I fixed a bug by making it signed but I ended up introducing a
new bug. But generally that's pretty rare. The more common case is
that making iterators unsigned introduces bugs.

It's better to default to "int i;" and if more complicated types are
required that should stand out. "size_t pg_idx;" or whatever.
