You are right: x86 should clear mm->pasid when a new mm is created.
This patch somehow is losted:(

x86 calls ioasid_alloc() instead of iommu_sva_alloc_pasid(). So
functionality is not a problem without this patch on x86. But I think
we do need to have this patch in the kernel because PASID is per addr
space and two addr spaces shouldn't have the same PASID.

Who will accept this patch?
