I've asked Ansuman to start with a patch that converts virtio to use
DMA ops always, along with an init quirk to hookup "direct" ops when
the IOMMU flag isn't set.

This will at least remove that horrid duplication of code path we have
in there.

Then we can just involve the arch in that init quirk so we can chose an
alternate set of ops when running a secure VM.

This is completely orthogonal to whether an iommu exist qemu side or
not, and should be entirely solved on the Linux side.
