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.
