Well, the ILK workaround was only ensuring that the gfx was idle while
the *graphics* IOTLB was flushed. We are still flushing the IOTLB for
*other* IOMMUs at arbitrary times.

Might be interesting to go for *deferred* IOTLB flushes (i.e. the normal
mode without the workaround or 'intel_iommu=strict' on the command
line), *BUT* to make sure the batched flush (the flush_unmaps() call)
can *only* happen when the GPU is quiescent. You could do that with a
dirty hack for testing, and if *that* fixes the issue.... well, $DEITY
knows, someone still needs a good kicking, but at least we'll have
learned something :)
