It looks like it should make the AMD driver should honor it, since it
uses the generic infrastructure for domain types? But it also shares
iommu_pass_through variable usage with Intel, so if I change it over
there it'll be covered for sure.

One unfortunate thing here is the divergence in command line options
between arm64 and x86. I'll add a 'iommu=nopt' on x86 so it can be
turned off at runtime if enabled in config, but it'd be nice to also
have it adhere to the .passthrough options. That's a larger topic than
just this specific patch though.

Posting new patch shortly.
