Set SMMU_GBPA to abort all incoming translations during the SMMU reset
when SMMUEN==0.

This prevents a race condition where a stray DMA from the crashed primary
kernel can try to access an IOVA address as an invalid PA when SMMU is
disabled during reset in the crash kernel.

A tangential question: can we reliably detect that the SMMU already
has valid mappings, which would indicate that we're in a pretty bad
shape already by the time we set that bit? For all we know, memory
could have been corrupted long before we hit this point, and this
patch barely narrows the window of opportunity.

:) Yes that is correct. This only covers the kdump scenario. Trying
to get some reliability when booting up the crash kernel. The system
is already in a bad state. I don't think that this will happen in a
normal scenario. But please point me to the GICv3 change and I'll
have a look.

See this:

The nearest equivalent to that is probably the top-level SMMUEN check that we already have (see the diff context above). To go beyond that you'd have to chase the old stream table pointer and scan the whole thing looking for valid contexts, then potentially walk page tables within those contexts to check for live translations if you really wanted to be sure. That would be a hell of a lot of work to do in the boot path.
