Hm, you're right; it should be returning addresses under 4GiB until that
space is exhausted and it has to use higher addresses, unless you pass
'forcedac' on the command line.

Please could you instrument alloc_iova (in drivers/pci/iova.c to print
its arguments, and also pfn_hi and pfn_lo of the iova it returns?

If those are sane, can you print start_vpfn at about line 2909 of
intel_iommu.c? And if *that* looks sane, print iov_pfn and the new value
of sg->dma_address each time that's set, at round line 1674.

Is this is 32-bit or 64-bit kernel?
