We could simplify swiotlb initialization after 2.6.36. If we merge my
patches to expand swiotlb memory dynamically, we could initialize
swiotlb before any hw IOMMUs (see the commit
186a25026c44d1bfa97671110ff14dcd0c99678e).

If you can make Xen swiotlb initialized like HW iommu, the IOMMU
initialization could be cleaner.

As I wrote, I also want to simplify swiotlb's init memory
allocation. I'll see what I can do on the whole issue.
