to me the limitation does not come from the smmu itself, which is a
separate HW block sitting between the root complex and the interconnect.
If ACS is not enforced by the PCIe subsystem, the transaction will never
reach the IOMMU.

In the case of such overlap, shouldn't we just warn the end-user that
this situation is dangerous instead of forbidding the use case which
worked "in most cases" until now.

Indeed taking into account the ACS capability would refine the
situations where a risk exists.

Thanks
