disable the IOMMU's device tree node in the first place because it would
prevent any driver from properly setting up the translations.

+Optional properties:
+- dma-can-stall: When present, the master can wait for a DMA transaction
+ to be handled by the IOMMU and can recover from a fault. For example, if
+ the page accessed by the DMA transaction isn't mapped, some IOMMUs are
+ able to stall the transaction and let the OS populate the page tables.
+ The IOMMU then performs the transaction if the fault was successfully
+ handled, or aborts the transaction otherwise.
+- pasid-bits: Some masters support multiple address spaces for DMA. By
+ tagging DMA transactions with an address space identifier. By default,
+ this is 0, which means that the device only has one address space.
