Any chance to always enable this? Last I checked sparc was the only
architecture still using a 32-bit dma_addr_t, leading to some fun
breakage in things like the software RDMA drivers that abuse it to
store a kernel pointer..
With change made by patch 6/6, dma_addr_t is always 64-bit, no matter if
device DMA mask is 32-bit (i.e. using existing IOMMU) or 64-bit (i.e
using ATU)
