My brain has sometimes a hard time parsing 'Not' and 'un'. Could this be:

Disable bounce buffer for unstrusted devices ..?


And perhaps call it 'noswiotlb' ? Not everyone knows that SWIOTLB = bounce buffer.

intel_swiotlb_on = 1 ?

Again, Intel-IOMMU: No SWIOTLB. T.. blah blah'

Asking for this as doing 'dmesg | grep SWIOTLB' will expose nicely all
the SWIOTLB invocations..
