[PATCH 0/8] Passthrough support for AMD-IOMMU (AMD-Vi)

From: Joerg Roedel
Date: Fri Sep 04 2009 - 05:38:36 EST


this series of patches implement iommu=pt support for AMD IOMMU (AMD-Vi). If
this option is passed on the kernel command line, the AMD-Vi driver will not
register itself as the dma_ops backend and allows all devices unlimited access
to main memory as long as no other kernel part (currently only KVM will do so)
assigns the device to another domain using the IOMMU-API.
