SubjectRe: [PATCH 4.19 070/118] iommu/arm-smmu-v3: Dont disable SMMU in kdump kernel
[FYI: This was in my spam folder. I'll reserve judgement on whether that's
the right decision.]

Yes, that's intentional. If we find the SMMU in an enabled state, it's
probably a good idea to configure it to abort all transactions before
disabling it, otherwise virtual addresses suddenly become physical addresses
and we could corrupt random memory. However, I don't think I've ever seen
this happen outside of kdump so it's admittedly a bit of a theoretical
scenario.

Regardless, patches to -stable should probably match their upstream
counterparts so even if this was an issue, I don't think this is the right
place to discuss it.
