Hardware platforms usually describe the IOMMU topology using either
device-tree pointers or vendor-specific ACPI tables.  For virtual
platforms that don't provide a device-tree, the virtio-iommu device
contains a description of the endpoints it manages.  That information
allows us to probe endpoints after the IOMMU is probed (possibly as late
as userspace modprobe), provided it is discovered early enough.

Add a hook to pci_dma_configure(), which returns -EPROBE_DEFER if the
endpoint is managed by a vIOMMU that will be loaded later, or 0 in any
other case to avoid disturbing the normal DMA configuration methods.
When CONFIG_VIRTIO_IOMMU_TOPOLOGY isn't selected, the call to
virt_dma_configure() is compiled out.

As long as the information is consistent, platforms can provide both a
device-tree and a built-in topology, and the IOMMU infrastructure is
able to deal with multiple DMA configuration methods.

Urgh, it's already been established[1] that having IOMMU setup tied to DMA configuration at driver probe time is not just conceptually wrong but actually broken, so the concept here worries me a bit. In a world where of_iommu_configure() and friends are being called much earlier around iommu_probe_device() time, how badly will this fall apart?
