Hi Will, Lorenzo, Robin,

I have created the patch to add DT support for this erratum. However, 
currently I have only added support for pci-based devices. I'm a bit 
stumped on how to add platform device support, or if we should also add 
support at all. And I would rather ask before sending the patches.

The specific issue is that I know of no platform device with an ITS 
msi-parent which we would want reserve, i.e. do not translate msi. And, 
if there were, how to do it.

The only platform devices I know off with msi ITS parents are SMMUv3 and 
mbigen. For mbigen, the msi are not translated. Actually, as I see under 
IORT solution, for mbigen we don't reserve the hw msi region as the 
SMMUv3 does not have an ID mapping. And we have no equivalent ID mapping 
property for DT SMMUv3, so cannot create an equivalent check.

So here is how the DT iommu get reserved region function with only pci 
device support looks:

  * of_iommu_its_get_resv_regions - Reserved region driver helper
  * @dev: Device from iommu_get_resv_regions()
  * @list: Reserved region list from iommu_get_resv_regions()
  * Returns: Number of reserved regions on success(0 if no associated ITS),
  *          appropriate error value otherwise.
int of_iommu_its_get_resv_regions(struct device *dev, struct list_head 
     struct device_node *of_node = NULL;
     struct device *parent_dev;
     const __be32 *msi_map;
     int num_mappings, i, err, len, resv = 0;

     /* walk up to find the parent with a msi-map property */
     for (parent_dev = dev; parent_dev; parent_dev = parent_dev->parent) {
         if (!parent_dev->of_node)

          * Current logic to reserve ITS regions for only PCI root
          * complex.
         msi_map = of_get_property(parent_dev->of_node, "msi-map", &len);
         if (msi_map) {
             of_node = parent_dev->of_node;

     if (!of_node)
         return 0;

     num_mappings = of_count_phandle_with_args(of_node, "msi-map", NULL) 
/ 4;

     for (i = 0; i < num_mappings; i++) {
         int prot = IOMMU_WRITE | IOMMU_NOEXEC | IOMMU_MMIO;
         struct iommu_resv_region *region;
         struct device_node *msi_node;
         struct resource resource;
         u32 phandle;

         phandle = be32_to_cpup(msi_map + 1);
         msi_node = of_find_node_by_phandle(phandle);
         if (!msi_node)
             return -ENODEV;

          * There may be different types of msi-controller, so check
          * for ITS.
         if (!of_device_is_compatible(msi_node, "arm,gic-v3-its")) {

         err = of_address_to_resource(msi_node, 0, &resource);

         if (err)
             return err;

         region = iommu_alloc_resv_region(resource.start, SZ_128K, prot,
         if (region) {
             list_add_tail(&region->list, head);

     return (resv == num_mappings) ? resv : -ENODEV;

Any feedback is appreciated.
