Why wouldn't the PCI bus set this up for its devices? Are you
"assuming" you know the bus type and that's the issue?
I see the a number of different places this is being initialized for the
Ah, look at drivers/iommu/fsl_pamu_domain.c, odds are, it shouldn't be
doing that logic in the pamu_domain_init() code, using the same bus ops
for different bus types, that's ripe for major problems...
