Please give me a full list of the IOMMU drivers which use this method. > But this requires a device_driver pointer that tegra-smmu doesn't > have.

And I already pointed out that following cargo cult is not always a good idea. ARM-SMMU isn't a modern driver and it has legacy code. You shouldn't copy it blindly. The sun50i-iommu driver was added half year ago, you may use it as a reference. Always consult the IOMMU core code. If you're too unsure about something, then maybe better to start a new thread and ask Joerg about the best modern practices that IOMMU drivers should use. _______________________________________________ iommu mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.linuxfoundation.org/mailman/listinfo/iommu
