Allow use of the No-IOMMU mode even if a real IOMMU is present.
This is useful in case the device is not part of an actual IOMMU group.

  - Some devices (e.g. rcar-gpio) don't use DMA, so why do they need an
    IOMMU group?
  - Even devices using DMA may do so using a separate DMAC module,
    pointed to by "dmas" DT properties (e.g. sh-sci), hence they may be
    not part of an IOMMU group.
  - How to know which devices do DMA?
