I think we've had another report about this. This is the error that's
being hit:

[ 1.056549] DRHD: handling fault status reg 2
[ 1.056612] DMAR:[DMA Write] Request device [04:00.1] fault addr fffe0000
[ 1.056614] DMAR:[fault reason 02] Present bit in context entry is clear

Essentially it seems that this Marvell controller can produce PCIe
transactions from the wrong device function (in this case presumably
from the PATA part of the controller on function 1 instead of the AHCI
part on function 0), and the IOMMU is blocking the access since the PATA
function hasn't had any DMA mapping set up.

Not sure what we can do about this.. maybe some kind of PCI quirk for
this device?
