If you want to use IOVA addresses in a device otherwise managed by
dma-iommu we need to expose an API through the dma API.  Can you please
include the iommu list in the discussion of your series?

I don't think using the raw IOMMU API is a very idea in these drivers,
we probably want a way to change the allocator algorithm or hint the
next IOVA and keep using the normal DMA API.  Maybe Robin has a better
iommu mailing list
