I don't follow, when does get_dma_ops() return a p2p aware provider?
It has no way to know if the DMA is going to involve p2p, get_dma_ops
is called with the device initiating the DMA.

So you'd always return the P2P shim on a system that has registered
P2P memory?

Even so, how does this shim work? dma_ops are not really intended to
be stacked. How would we make unmap work, for instance? What happens
when the underlying iommu dma ops actually natively understands p2p
and doesn't want the shim?

I think this opens an even bigger can of worms..

Lets find a strategy to safely push this into dma_ops.

What about something more incremental like this instead:
- dma_ops will set map_sg_p2p == map_sg when they are updated to
support p2p, otherwise DMA on P2P pages will fail for those ops.
- When all ops support p2p we remove the if and ops->map_sg then
just call map_sg_p2p
- For now the scatterlist maintains a bit when pages are added indicating if
p2p memory might be present in the list.
- Unmap for p2p and non-p2p is the same, the underlying ops driver has
to make it work.
