The previous patch removed the code block for XEN guests which forced
the use of DMA API all the time irrespective of VIRTIO_F_IOMMU_PLATFORM
flag on the device. Here is what I have removed with patch 2/4 which
breaks the existing semantics on XEN guests.

-static bool vring_use_dma_api(struct virtio_device *vdev)
-{
- if (!virtio_has_iommu_quirk(vdev))
- return true;
-
- /* Otherwise, we are left to guess. */
- /*
- * In theory, it's possible to have a buggy QEMU-supposed
- * emulated Q35 IOMMU and Xen enabled at the same time. On
- * such a configuration, virtio has never worked and will
- * not work without an even larger kludge. Instead, enable
- * the DMA API if we're a Xen guest, which at least allows
- * all of the sensible Xen configurations to work correctly.
- */
- if (xen_domain())
- return true;
-
- return false;
-}

XEN guests would not like override with virtio_direct_dma_ops in any
case irrespective of the flag VIRTIO_F_IOMMU_PLATFORM. So the existing
semantics can be preserved with something like this. It just assumes
that dev->dma_ops is non-NULL and a valid one set by the architecture.
If required we can add those tests here before skipping the override.

Will incorporate these changes in the next version.
