Subject[PATCH] Revert "iommu/amd: Treat per-device exclusion ranges as r/w unity-mapped regions"
Date
A regression failure of kdump kernel boot was reported on a HPE system.
Bisect points at commit 387caf0b759ac43 ("iommu/amd: Treat per-device
exclusion ranges as r/w unity-mapped regions") as criminal. Reverting it
fix the failure.

With the commit, kdump kernel will always print below error message, then
naturally AMD iommu can't function normally during kdump kernel bootup.

~~~~~~~~~
AMD-Vi: [Firmware Bug]: IVRS invalid checksum

Why commit 387caf0b759ac43 causing it haven't been made clear.

From the commit log, a discussion thread link is pasted. In that discussion
thread, Adrian told the fix is for a system with already broken BIOS, and
Joerg suggested two options. Finally option 2) is taken. Maybe option 1)
should be the right approach?

1) Bail out and disable the IOMMU as the BIOS screwed up
2) Treat per-device exclusion ranges just as r/w unity-mapped
regions.
