For 4.20 I plan to remove the swiotlb ops and instead do the bounce
buffering in the common code, including a direct call to the direct
ops to avoid retpoline overhead. For that you still need a flag
in virtio that instead of blindly working physical addresses it needs
to be treated like a real device in terms of DMA.

And for powerpc to make use of that I need to get the dma series I
posted last week reviewed and included, otherwise powerpc will have
to be excepted (like arm, where rmk didn't like the way the code
was factored, everything else has already been taken care of).
