Subjectiwlwifi problem with iommu/intel-iommu: Enable CONFIG_DMA_DIRECT_OPS=y and clean up intel_{alloc,free}_coherent()
Hi all,
since kernel 4.17 my laptop fails to enable wireless card (04:00.0 Network
controller: Intel Corporation Wireless 8260 (rev 3a) )
with this error:

Jul 01 09:34:36 hobbes kernel: iwlwifi: probe of 0000:04:00.0 failed with error

I bisected the issue to this result:
d657c5c73ca987214a6f9436e435b34fc60f332a is the first bad commit
commit d657c5c73ca987214a6f9436e435b34fc60f332a

iommu/intel-iommu: Enable CONFIG_DMA_DIRECT_OPS=y and clean up

Use the dma_direct_*() helpers and clean up the code flow.

By reverting this commit the card works again, tested in 4.17.3 . I've noticed
that the corresponding amd commit ( b468620f2a1dfdcfddfd6fa54367b8bcc1b51248)
has been reverted in linus tree (e16c4790de39dc861b749674c2a9319507f6f64f),
and 4.16.X stable tree iirc, but the intel one has not been reverted.

hw: Lenovo P50 Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6820HQ CPU @ 2.70GHz

Please let me know if more details are needed, but CC: me as I'm not currently
subscribed to LKML.

many thanks.
