Write a patch, submit it? ;-).

Okay, I guess I should do the patch, but I can't test it easily. If
you can do testing/some development, I guess I can try to cook up
something.

(But no, I'm not an IOMMU expert).

It is a Linux bug. BIOS could be more helpful, but... this is a Linux
problem.

Yep, they are similar to what I see.

Subject is easy to change ;-).
