Sorry for being late to the party and thanks a lot for the patch. Please see my
comments inline.

iommu_dma_alloc_remap() makes use of the DMA_ATTR_ALLOC_SINGLE_PAGES attribute
to optimize the allocations for devices which don't care about how contiguous
the backing memory is. Do you think we could add an attrs argument to this
function and pass it there?

As ARM is being moved to the common iommu-dma layer as well, we'll probably
make use of the argument to support the DMA_ATTR_NO_KERNEL_MAPPING attribute to
conserve the vmalloc area.

Best regards,
Tomasz
