Subject[PATCH V3] 2.6.34: simple IOMMU API extension to check safe interrupt remapping
This patch allows IOMMU users to determine whether the hardware and software
support safe, isolated interrupt remapping. Not all Intel IOMMUs have the
hardware, and the software for AMD is not there yet.
Signed-off-by: Tom Lyon <pugs@cisco.com>

Version 3: shorter name requested by Joerg.
Version 2: previous ifdefs not needed.
MST has convinced me that any user level driver for PCI master devices can't
be safe unless there is an IOMMU protecting the APIC MSI/MSI-X interrupt
addresses from device writes. This interrupt remapping is not present in all
Intel IOMMUs and the code for the interrupt mapping in the AMD IOMMUs is not
implemented yet.

Needed by not-yet-accepted VFIO driver.
