That's probably a bad idea, because you'll likely stall execution on the
CPU until the IOTLB has completed invalidation. In the case of ATS, I think
an endpoint ATC is permitted to take over a minute to respond. In reality, I
suspect the worst you'll ever see would be in the msec range, but that's
still an unacceptable period of time to hold a CPU.

I attended this session, but it unfortunately raised many more questions
than it answered.
