[PATCH 0/2] iommu/vt-d: Keep RMRR mappings around on driver unbind

From: Joerg Roedel
Date: Tue Sep 30 2014 - 07:02:29 EST


here is a patch-set to fix an issue recently discovered when
the Intel IOMMU is in use with devices that need RMRR

The problem is that the RMRR mappings are destroyed when the
device driver is unbound from the device, causing DMAR

To solve this problem a device driver core change is
necessary to catch the right point in time for the IOMMU
code to destroy any mappings for a device.

With this patch-set the RMRR mappings are only destroyed
when the device is actually removed from the system.

Please review.

driver core: Add BUS_NOTIFY_REMOVED_DEVICE event
iommu/vt-d: Only remove domain when device is removed
