Hello, Thierry! It certainly will be interesting to take a look at yours
patch!

I think that the caching shouldn't be strictly necessary for keeping the
current workaround working and it should be possible to keep the code
as-is by replacing the domain-type checking with the SoC-generation
check in the Tegra DRM driver.

In general, IMO it should be better to stash the complex changes until
we'll get closer to adopting the new UAPI as it will certainly touch the
aspect of the per-device mappings. But if yours patch is less than 100
LOC, then maybe we could consider applying it right now!
