Hi Keith

Thanks for your kindly response and directive

When I test there is only one irq vector, I get following result:
124: 0 0 253541 0 0 0 0 0 IR-PCI-MSI 1048576-edge nvme0q0, nvme0q1

Oh sorry, my bad, I mean it is operation on DMA address, it is uncached.
-> nvme_process_cq
-> nvme_read_cqe
-> nvme_cqe_valid

static inline bool nvme_cqe_valid(struct nvme_queue *nvmeq, u16 head,
u16 phase)
return (le16_to_cpu(nvmeq->cqes[head].status) & 1) == phase;
