I think so. I haven't studied the LX2K architecture too heavily but I
assume the 1G networking socket at the back of Honeycomb LX2 is DPAA2
baseD? If so, that 1G socket works with the patch reverted.

Note that I was already using "arm-smmu.disable_bypass=0" on this platform
since I was guided into doing that based on the error messages from
older kernels. It was only the new requirement to set iommu.passthrough
that caught me out.

I see. Looks like, after the traffic on the ML in October, that this
patch set is pending a v8 revision in order to stimulate the next round
of discussion?
