No, not 'most users'. But perhaps we should.

All we've done so far is make intel-agp use the DMA API correctly. And
that's conditional on CONFIG_DMAR. But we could make it unconditional,
and make the other drivers do it too. The code is all fairly generic.

Without an IOMMU, the overhead would be fairly minimal.
