I tend to agree but this comes down to how IOVA addresses are generated in the kernel. Alex (or anyone else) can you point to where IOVA addresses are generated? As Logan stated earlier, p2pdma bypasses this and programs the PCI bus address directly but other IO going to the same PCI EP may flow through the IOMMU and be programmed with IOVA rather than PCI bus addresses.
