Besides the modify_irte() changes I asked for the patch-set looks good.
I just have some concerns what these changes mean for the VT-d kdump
improvements Zhen-Hua Li is working on. Can you please discuss the
implications of having both patch-sets applied with him and make sure
they work together? I think in its current form your patch-set breaks
the kdump support patches. I added Zhen-Hua to Cc.
