Yes. The other drivers just assumed that if there is SWIOTLB they would use
the smaller size by default (as in they knew the limitation).

But I agree it would be better to have something smarter - and also convert the
DRM drivers to piggy back on this.

Or alternatively we could make SWIOTLB handle bigger sizes..
