Re: Troubles running Xen on Raspberry Pi 4 with 5.6.1 DomU

Hi Roman,

In regards to the attached stack trace, nothing rings a bell
unfortunately. I don't know why quirk_usb_early_handoff causes a crash.
It would be useful to add a few printk in quirk_usb_early_handoff to
know where the crash is happening exactly.

In regards to Dornerworks's third patch, it doesn't look like it is
related to the quirk_usb_early_handoff crash. The third patch is
probably not useful anymore because dev->archdata.dev_dma_ops is gone
completely. However, just in case, something like the following would
help recognize if the original bug still persists in newer kernels

diff --git a/arch/arm64/mm/dma-mapping.c b/arch/arm64/mm/dma-mapping.c
