Isn't this effectively hard-coding the topology of the SoC in the driver?
Wouldn't it better describing higher-level prefetch properties in the DT
nodes corresponding to the upstream devices?

Since prefetch data stored in this table represent settings for the
ACTLR register, and doesn't exactly define the hardware (So in this
manner prefetch data won't exactly be a part of soc topology ?).
So it seemed apt not to use the device tree for storing the prefetch
property. Hence we reverted from the DT approach (initial proposal in
RFC to piggyback on iommus property to store prefetch settings) back to use driver for storing this data.

Some drivers use the same approach for storing their platform specific
data. Examples being
These drivers were taken as reference for storing platform specific ACTLR data.

Thanks & regards,

Looking back at the prior revisions of this series, it seems like others
were in favour of this approach, so if that's the general consensus, then
so be it. But is this _really_ what we want in the SMMU driver? It would
be good to have an Ack from Robin and a DT maintainer on this mechanism.

It just all feels a bit like a step back into the bad old world of
platform data to me, where we end up trying to maintain a bunch of random
constants that supposedly make things faster for somebody :/
