With CONFIG_INTEL_IOMMU_DEFAULT_ON=n, you have to manually enabled the
IOMMU on the kernel commandline. So, yes, disabling that and having
your laptop boot is not surprising. The Kconfig item changed names,
and the default is yes, so you may have had CONFIG_DMAR_DEFAULT_ON=n,
but this would not have propagated forward.

As for the endless loop of DMAR faults...sounds like the Ricoh
cardbus/firewire issue where the firewire fucntion does DMA from
function 0. I thought this was quirked and fixed though.
