When we have near complete proposal from two device vendors, you
want to push something to unknown future without reviewing the work;

make sense.
Didn't I ever provide feedback to you? Really?
No. I didnât see why you need to post a new patch for dirty page tracking,
when it is already present in this series.
This is plain ignorance and shows non_cooperative mode of working in technical committee.

I personally think it's fine to have multiple proposals on the table.
For example, current Zhu Lingshan's patch is clearly incomplete without
memory change tracking.
Why shouldn't he post a patchset demonstrating
how that is supposed to work in his view?
I am personally interested in seeing how is that
supposed to work   - his latest proposal relies on migrating by
trapping memory accesses but DMA can't be trapped like this generally.
Yes, dirty page tracking will be included in V2, the config space bar/cap
look like the draft I present before, and the dirty page bitmap placed in
host memory that isolated by the PASID, device DMA writing to the bitmap,
and that can avoid RMW process.

Let me sycn with Eugenio, see whether we can include his "inflight descriptors tracking"
in this V2.


In the end we want something addressing all use cases though
and integrating reasonably well with existing ecosystem.
