Hi Joerg,
This is quite strange. I checked the patches from patch 01 to 10 using ./scripts/ under the kernel source directory, but got 0 errors and 0 warning. Only some white spaces in the cover letter 00, but is could not be checked by this script.

But I checked the intel-iommu.c using " -f", found too many warnings and errors. Maybe we need a new patch to fix them.

This patchset is an update of Bill Sumner's patchset, implements a fix for:
If a kernel boots with intel_iommu=on on a system that supports intel vt-d,

I reviewed this patch-set and it is getting closer to a point where it
could be merged. I found a few white-space errors in the review, please
do a check_patch run on the next round and fix these. Besides that and
given some third-party testing and reviews I think we can look forward
to merge it early after the merge-window for v4.1, to give it enough
testing in -next too.
