OK, I am so sorry that I have not understood your opinion correctly.

If you wanted to avoid even that, you could replace domain->non_strict with an iommu_domain_set_attr() call, so iommu_dma could tell up-front whether the driver understands non-strict mode and it's worth setting the queue up or not.

OK, I will think seriously about it, thanks. I've been busy these days, I will reply to you as soon as possible.
