This example should look like this instead:

AMD-Vi: Event logged [IO_PAGE_FAULT device=51:00.0 domain=0x0000 address=0x0 flags: G NX US I P Wr Rsvd Tr]

by default. When the user passes amd_iommu=verbose on the cmd-line then
you can print additional information like "type of error" or the dump
the DTE.
