[PATCH V2 RFC] fixup! virtio: convert to use DMA api

From: Michael S. Tsirkin

This adds a flag to enable/disable bypassing the IOMMU by
virtio devices.

This is on top of patch
virtio: convert to use DMA api

Tested with patchset
virtio-pci: iommu support (note: bit number has been kept at 34
intentionally to match posted guest code. a non-RFC version will
renumber bits to be contigious).

changes from v1:

The interaction between virtio and DMA API is messy.

On most systems with virtio, physical addresses match bus addresses,
and it doesn't particularly matter whether we use the DMA API.

On some systems, including Xen and any system with a physical device
that speaks virtio behind a physical IOMMU, we must use the DMA API
for virtio DMA to work at all.

Add a feature bit to detect that: VIRTIO_F_IOMMU_PLATFORM.

If not there, we preserve historic behavior and bypass the DMA
API unless within Xen guest. This is actually required for
systems, including SPARC and PPC64, where virtio-pci devices are
enumerated as though they are behind an IOMMU, but the virtio host
ignores the IOMMU, so we must either pretend that the IOMMU isn't
there or somehow map everything as the identity.

Re: non-virtio devices.

It turns out that on old QEMU hosts, only emulated devices which were
part of QEMU use the IOMMU. Should we want to bypass the IOMMU for such
devices *only*, it would be rather easy to detect them by looking at
subsystem vendor and device ID. Thus, no new interfaces are required
except for virtio which always uses the same subsystem vendor and device ID.
