Subject[RFC v2 2/2] powerpc/pseries/iommu: Use dma_iommu_ops for Secure VMs aswell.
Commit edea902c1c1e disabled dma_iommu_ops path, for secure VMs. The
rationale for disabling the dma_iommu_ops path, was to enable use of the
dma_direct path, which had inbuilt support for bounce-buffering through

However dma_iommu_ops is functionally much richer. Depending on the
capabilities of the platform, it can handle direct DMA; with or without
bounce buffering, and it can handle indirect DMA. Hence its better to
leverage the richer functionality supported by dma_iommu_ops.

Revert edea902c1c1e and renable dma_iommu_ops path for pseries Secure
