Been on easter vacation. I have a patch ready for review, though, will
send it out in a moment.

It turns out that to do something well-behaved in case someone sets
swiotlb=force, the variable swiotlb_force would need to be exported.
(I can't rely on swiotlb_nr_tbl()).

That's not currently done in the patch, but instead the driver just
malfunctions like most other graphics drivers.
