When sharing a process context with devices (SVA), we write in that
context descriptor the ASID allocated by the arch ASID allocator for
that process. But that ASID might already have been allocated locally by
the SMMU driver for a private context. As there is a single ASID space
per SMMU for both private and shared ASIDs, we reallocated the private
ASID and update it here. See

It might return NULL with patch 5/8, when we can't allocate a 2nd-level
table. I can move the check over to that patch.

Right.

Thanks,
