    last time i asked why 2x74x hardware iommu wasn't supported i was told
    something along the lines of cause generic kernel driver interfaces
    wouldn't support it. so support for the alpha hardware would require
    changing certain global interfaces (and all the drivers using them).

    so for the short-term i guess you will have to implement a dri-local
    hack. However for the 2x17x boards you could make use of the IOMMU
    and at least prove the usefullness of it. (and a speed benefit.)
