Hi Joerg,
This is quite strange. I checked the patches from patch 01 to 10 using 
./scripts/checkpatch.pl 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 "checkpatch.pl -f", found too many 
warnings and errors. Maybe we need a new patch to fix them.
