This should definitely be done only on ARM and ARM64, as on x86 PVH
assumes the presence of an IOMMU. We need an ifdef.

Also we need to figure out a way to try without GFP_DMA in case no ram
under 4g is available at all, as some arm64 platforms don't have any. Of
course in those cases we don't need to worry about devices and their dma
masks. Maybe we could use memblock for that? Something like:

struct memblock_region *reg;
gfp_t flags = __GFP_NOWARN;

#if defined(CONFIG_ARM) || defined(CONFIG_ARM64)
for_each_memblock(memory, reg) {
unsigned long start = memblock_region_memory_base_pfn(reg);

if (start < 4G) {
flags |= __GFP_DMA;
break;
}
}
#endif

[...]

xen_io_tlb_start = (void *)__get_free_pages(flags, order);

Actually on ARM dom0 is mapped 1:1, so it is the same thing.
