This adds trace support for the Intel IOMMU driver. It

Is that even needed considering SWIOTLB also has tracing events?

Currently there isn't any trace point in swiotlb_tbl_map_single().
If we want to add trace point there, I hope we can distinguish the
bounce page events from other use cases (such as bounce buffer for
direct dma), so that we could calculate how many percents of DMA buffers
used by a specific device driver needs to use bounce page.
