As I mentioned before, devicetree was a lower priority and we would definitely
submit patch to support that. Even if we update the arm_smmu_options table
with DT binding, the generic function to retrieve the MSI address regions only
works on ACPI/IORT case now.

Moreover I am on holidays starting tomorrow, and really appreciate if this 
series
can go through now.

Please let me know.

Thanks,
Shameer
