Do you think you can keep a pointer to the parent bridge instead of querying it
via get_upstream_bridge_port() here so that we can reuse your
pci_p2pdma_disable_acs() in the future.

Keep a pointer where? pci_p2pdma_disable_acs() and pci_p2pdma_add_client() are used in completely different cases on completely different devices. There really is no overlap and no obvious place to store the port pointer (except in the struct pci_dev itself, in which case why not just call the function again).

+int pci_p2pdma_disable_acs(struct pci_dev *pdev)
+       struct pci_dev *up;
+       int pos;
+       u16 ctrl;
+       up = get_upstream_bridge_port(pdev);
+       if (!up)
+               return 0;

Some future device would only deal with pci_p2pdma_add_client(() for 
instead of changing all of your code.

That's a problem for whoever writes the future code.

We should at least limit the usage of get_upstream_bridge_port() family of 
to probe time only.


We can tell iommu to do one to one translation by passing iommu.passthrough=1 
to kernel
command line to have identical behavior to your switch case.

Well, someone will need to write code for all available IOMMUs to support this. That's a very big project.
