SubjectRe: [PATCH v7 6/6] drm/msm: iommu: Replace runtime calls with runtime suppliers
Hi Vivek,

Thanks for the patch. Please see my comments inline.

For me, it looks like a wrong place to handle runtime PM of IOMMU
here. iommu_attach_device() calls into IOMMU driver's attach_device()
callback and that's where necessary runtime PM gets should happen, if
any. In other words, driver A (MSM DRM driver) shouldn't be dealing
with power state of device controlled by driver B (ARM SMMU).

This is also important for the reasons I stated in my comments to
"[PATCH v7 1/6] base: power: runtime: Export
pm_runtime_get/put_suppliers". Quoting for everyone's convenience:

In other words, the SMMU driver can deal with hardware state based on
return value of pm_runtime_get_sync() or pm_runtime_get_if_in_use()
and decide whether some operations are necessary or not, e.g.
- a state restore is necessary if the domain was powered off, but we
are bringing the master on,
- a flush may not be required when (un)mapping with the domain powered off,
- etc.

Best regards,
