Btw, I think you should do the same in early_gart_iommu_check() too.

Doing the testing this way would mean that we first are testing for GART
hw presence and then do the rest of checks. If no GART hw, the rest of
the checks are meaningless.

Also, when testing do a "pci=noearly" boot which should make


true and thus test that path too.
