Yes, thanks for pointing it out.

While this code is specific to IBM's xSeries systems, it will not hurt
to have it enabled on other systems. The code is intelligent enough to
detect the existence of Calgary chips and, if not there, will go down
the standard path of no-iommu (providing that swiotlb has not been
specified at boottime). If this isn't clear enough in the description,
I can remedy that.

Thanks,
Jon
