UACCE_DEV_NOIOMMU maybe confusing here.

In this mode, app use ioctl to get dma_handle from dma_alloc_coherent.

It does not matter iommu is enabled or not.
In case iommu is disabled, it maybe dangerous to kernel, so we added warning here, is it required?


We support two modes.
1. support sva, (va = iova)
a. If pasid is supported, multi-process can be supported.
b. If pasid is not supported, multi-process can NOT be supported.
We borrowed va from user space to achieve a single virtual address system.


2. Can not support sva, iova != va,
Here user app get dma_handle from dma_alloc_coherent via ioctl.
We need this mode for two reasons:
1. This mode can support multi-process, to support openssl etc.
2. Some accelerators (crypto like zip, etc) can work without sva, just prepare data and kick start.

Thanks
