    and it is the double of the iommu space that I am going to reserve for
    pci dynamic mappings on the tsunami (right now it is 128Mbyte... and I'll
    change to 512mbyte) also bttv is not doing that a large dma and by
    default it only uses 2 buffers in the ring. bttv is not a good example
    of what can really overflow the pci virtual address space in real life
    (when I mentioned it it was only to point out it still uses
    virt_to_bus), filling a pci bus with bttv cards sounds quite silly
    anyways ;)
