Sriram,
You are correct we cannot mandate the initiator to receive an L_Q IU. I
believe the correct wording is below:

During read streaming the sequence of SPI data stream information units
shall end when the P_CRCA signal is asserted before the end of the current
SPI data stream information unit boundary. If during the last SPI data
stream information unit the P_CRCA signal was not asserted and initiator
detects a REQ transition after receiving the last iuCRC for a SPI data
stream information unit that initiator shall receive the next SPI data
stream information unit. If during the last SPI data stream information
unit the P_CRCA signal was asserted and initiator detects a REQ transition
after receiving the last iuCRC for a SPI data stream information unit that
initiator shall <<logically disconnect from the current I_T_L_Q nexus>>.

Bye for now,

George:

   If P_CRCA is not asserted u can mandate the initiator to continue
transferring another SPI data stream IU.  But how can u mandate the
initiator to receive a L_Q if the P_CRCA signal is asserted?  What if
the target does NOT send a L_Q?  The target may choose to do, say, a QAS
message in the MESSAGE IN phase.

   Also a minor thing about 14.3.4: there are quite a few places where u
have "transfer or receive" and some places with "transmit or receive".
The later one makes sense, but u could just have said "transfer" to mean
"transmit or receive" and u probably don't need "receive" after
"transfer" :)

~ Another typo has been pointed out in section 14.3.4 in the fifth
paragraph.
~ It currently states:
~
~ During read streaming the sequence of SPI data stream information
units
~ shall end when the P_CRCA signal is asserted before the end of the
current
~ SPI data stream information unit boundary. If during the last SPI data
~ stream information unit the P_CRCA signal was asserted and initiator
~ detects a REQ transition after receiving the last iuCRC for a SPI data
~ stream information unit that initiator shall receive the next SPI data
~ stream information unit. If during the last SPI data stream
information
~ unit the P_CRCA signal was negated and initiator detects a REQ
transition
~ after receiving the last iuCRC for a SPI data stream information unit
that
~ initiator shall receive a L_Q information unit.
~
~ It needs to be changed to:
~
~ During read streaming the sequence of SPI data stream information
units
~ shall end when the P_CRCA signal is asserted before the end of the
current
~ SPI data stream information unit boundary. If during the last SPI data
~ stream information unit the P_CRCA signal was << not >> asserted and
~ initiator detects a REQ transition after receiving the last iuCRC for
a SPI
~ data stream information unit that initiator shall receive the next SPI
data
~ stream information unit. If during the last SPI data stream
information
~ unit the P_CRCA signal was << asserted >> and initiator detects a REQ
~ transition after receiving the last iuCRC for a SPI data stream
information
~ unit that initiator shall receive a L_Q information unit.
