Without those patches, user experience will be affected and some devices
will not work on Intel platforms anymore.

For a long time, Intel IOMMU driver has its own logic to determine
whether a device requires an identity domain. For example, when user
specifies "iommu=pt" in kernel parameter, all device will be attached
with the identity domain. Further more, some quirky devices require
an identity domain to be used before enabling DMA remapping, otherwise,
it will not work. This was done by adding quirk bits in Intel IOMMU

So from my point of view, one way is porting all those quirks and kernel
parameters into IOMMU generic layer, or opening a door for vendor IOMMU
driver to determine the default domain type by their own. I prefer the
latter option since it will not impact any behaviors on other

This will not work as I commented in that thread.
