Subject[patch 01/22] AMD IOMMU: enable device isolation per default
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Joerg Roedel <joerg.roedel@amd.com>

commit 3ce1f93c6d53c3f91c3846cf66b018276c8ac2e7 upstream.

Impact: makes device isolation the default for AMD IOMMU

Some device drivers showed double-free bugs of DMA memory while testing
them with AMD IOMMU. If all devices share the same protection domain
this can lead to data corruption and data loss. Prevent this by putting
each device into its own protection domain per default.
