SubjectRe: [PATCH] iommu: Lower severity of add/remove device messages
From
Date
Hello Joerg,

Thanks for reviewing.

I understand this change bears some controversy
for IOMMU, as developers are probably used to see these
messages.

Sure, but the messages are still here, you can
always enable them when you are looking at IOMMU issues :-)

The idea is to reduce the amount of verbosity in the kernel.

If all subsystems would print messages that are useful
when looking at issues, things would be quite nasty verbose.

Thanks!
