There are plenty of cases where getting iommu faults with a GPU is
"normal", or at least not something the kernel or even GL driver can
control.

With this patch, you still get the iommu fault, but it doesn't cause
the gpu to crash. But without it, other memory accesses in flight
while the fault occurs, like the GPU command-processor reading further
ahead in the cmdstream to setup next draw, would return zero's,
causing the GPU to crash or get into a bad state.
