Hi Marc,

I have no objection to this patch, which says:

Reviewed-by: Zenghui Yu <yuzenghui@huawei.com>


But this patch really drives me to look through all callsites of
dev_event_to_col(), the abstraction which can be used _only_ with
physical LPI mappings.

I find that when building the INV command, we use dev_event_to_col()
to find the "sync_obj" and then pass it to the following SYNC command.
But the "INV+SYNC" will be performed both on physical LPI and *VLPI*
(lpi_update_config/its_send_inv).
So I have two questions about the way we sending INV on VLPI:

1) Which "sync" command should be followed?  SYNC or VSYNC?
(we currently use SYNC, while the spec says, SYNC "ensures all
outstanding ITS operations associated with *physical* interrupts
for the Redistributor are globally observed ...")

2) The "sync_obj" we are currently using seems to be wrong.


Thanks,
Zenghui
