Subject: Re: [RFC PATCH v1] memory: tegra: Block DMA for clients HW on a faulty memory access

One potential issue is with host1x clients where userspace processes can 
submit jobs with invalid memory accesses (addresses not mapped to 
IOMMU). If when such a failure happens, we disable the DMA for the whole 
host1x client, unrelated userspace processes may see failures even 
though there is no problem with their jobs.
