About unity-mappings, are you saying it for intel iommu or amd iommu?
For amd iommu, I just skip call set_dte_entry calling during iommu
device init stage. Then in device init stage, namely __map_single, judge
and call set_dte_entry there to install the new pt_root into the related
dev table entry.

Thought you mention it, let me look into the unity-mappings of amd iommu

Thanks a lot!
