I'll need to double-check this, it's indeed not clear to me right now.

I see that if Tegra DRM driver uses implicit IOMMU domain, then when VDE
driver imports DMA-buf from Terga DRM and the imported buffer will be
auto-mapped to the implicit VDE IOVA [1].

The Tegra DRM has a very special quirk for ARM32 that was added in this
commit [2] and driver relies on checking of whether explicit or implicit
IOMMU is used in order to activate the quirk.


Once the implicit IOMMU is used for the DRM driver, the quirk no longer
works (if I'm not missing something). This problem needs to be resolved
before implicit IOMMU could be used by the Tegra DRM on ARM32.

Surely it will take some time to resolve all the problems and it's great
that you're pushing this work!

I'll try to help with fixing the ARM32 Tegra side of the problems. I
added this to my "TODO" list and should be able to take a closer look
during of this/next weeks!
