Subjectgeneric DMA bypass flag v4
Hi all,

I've recently beeing chatting with Lu about using dma-iommu and
per-device DMA ops in the intel IOMMU driver, and one missing feature
in dma-iommu is a bypass mode where the direct mapping is used even
when an iommu is attached to improve performance. The powerpc
code already has a similar mode, so I'd like to move it to the core
DMA mapping code. As part of that I noticed that the current
powerpc code has a little bug in that it used the wrong check in the
dma_sync_* routines to see if the direct mapping code is used.

These two patches just add the generic code and move powerpc over,
the intel IOMMU bits will require a separate discussion.

The x86 AMD Gart code also has a bypass mode, but it is a lot
strange, so I'm not going to touch it for now.

Note that as-is this breaks the XSK buffer pool, which unfortunately
poked directly into DMA internals. A fix for that is already queued
up in the netdev tree.

Jesper and XDP gang: this should not regress any performance as
the dma-direct calls are now inlined into the out of line DMA mapping
calls. But if you can verify the performance numbers that would be
greatly appreciated.

A git tree is available here:

git:// dma-bypass.4


Changes since v3:
- add config options for the dma ops bypass and dma ops themselves
to not increase the size of tinyconfig builds

Changes since v2:
- move the dma mapping helpers out of line
- check for possible direct mappings using the dma mask

Changes since v1:
- rebased to the current dma-mapping-for-next tree
