If I understand Arindam's patch correctly, it only flushes TLB entries for domains in the flush queue whereas the previous behavior was to flush all domains. If there was no TLB flush in the queue for that domain, could flushing it cause a problem? Sorry, I'm not too familiar with the IOMMU code or ATS.
