This patch was tested on existing HW (which does not have ASID implementation)
and tested on QEMU (which has very simplistic Implementation of ASID).

When I asked Gary Guo about way to get access to their HW (in same patch
email thread), I did not get any reply. After so many months passed, I now
doubt the his comment "absolutely does not work".

The intention of the ASID patch was to encourage RISC-V implementations
having ASID in HW and also ensure that things don't break on existing HW.

I don't see our efforts being wasted in trying to make Linux RISC-V feature
complete and encouraging more feature rich RISC-V CPUs.

Delays in merging patches are fine as long as people have something to try
on their RISC-V CPU implementations.
