Subject[PATCH RFC 1/1] iommu: set the default iommu-dma mode as non-strict
Date
Currently, many peripherals are faster than before. For example, the top
speed of the older netcard is 10Gb/s, and now it's more than 25Gb/s. But
when iommu page-table mapping enabled, it's hard to reach the top speed
in strict mode, because of frequently map and unmap operations. In order
to keep abreast of the times, I think it's better to set non-strict as
default.

Below it's our iperf performance data of 25Gb netcard:
strict mode: 18-20 Gb/s
non-strict mode: 23.5 Gb/s

Request that DMA unmap operations use deferred
invalidation of hardware TLBs, for increased
throughput at the cost of reduced device isolation.
Will fall back to strict mode if not supported by
the relevant IOMMU driver.

DMA unmap operations invalidate IOMMU hardware TLBs
