Will, Robin - Modulo the impl changes from Robin, do you think that using a dedicated pagetable format is the right approach for supporting split pagetables for the Adreno GPU? If so, then is adding the changes to io-pgtable-arm.c possible for 5.4 and then add the implementation specific code on top of Robin's stack later or do you feel they should come as part of a package deal?
