Hi Jean,

I notice that there is problem. In my case, I expect that CD0 is for kernel
and other CDs are for user space. Normally there shouldn't be any fault in
kernel, however, we have RAS case which is for some reason there may has
invalid address access from hardware device.

So at least there are two different address access failures: 1. hardware RAS problem;
2. software fault fail(e.g. kill process when doing DMA). Handlings for these
two are different: for 1, we should reset hardware device; for 2, stop related
DMA is enough.

Currently if SMMU returns the same signal(by SMMU resume abort), master device
driver can not tell these two kinds of cases.

>From the basic concept, if a CD is used for kernel, its S bit should not be set.
How about we add iommu domain check here too, if DMA domain we do not set S bit for
CD0, if unmanaged domain we set S bit for all CDs?
