Subject[PATCH v6 0/7] iommu/amd: Enable page-selective flushes
From: Nadav Amit <>

The previous patch, commit 268aa4548277 ("iommu/amd: Page-specific
invalidations for more than one page") was supposed to enable
page-selective IOTLB flushes on AMD.

Besides the bug that was already fixed by commit a017c567915f
("iommu/amd: Fix wrong parentheses on page-specific invalidations")
there are several remaining matters to enable and benefit from
page-selective IOTLB flushes on AMD:

1. Enable selective flushes on unmap (patch 1)
2. Avoid using flush-queue on vIOMMUs (patch 2)
3. Relaxed flushes when gathering, excluding vIOMMUs (patches 3-5)
4. Syncing once on scatter-gather map operations (patch 6)
5. Breaking flushes to naturally aligned ranges on vIOMMU (patch 7)

The main difference in this version is that the logic that flushes
vIOMMU was improved based on Robin's feedback. Batching decisions are
not based on alignment anymore, but instead the flushing range is broken
into naturally aligned regions on sync. Doing so allows us to flush only
the entries that we modified with the minimal number of flushes.

Robin, others: your feedback would be highly appreciated to get these
patches merge.
