    Please see patch 5. We have two workarounds for graphics. One is
    completely bypass dma remapping for gfx, this option only works for gfx
    card with dedicated dma remapping engine. The other is doing 1-1 mapping
    for whole physical memory address, then virtual dma address will equal
    to physical address, so gfx can ignore iommu in the case.

    Thanks,
