Subject[PATCH v8 06/11] PCI: portdrv: Set driver_managed_dma
If a switch lacks ACS P2P Request Redirect, a device below the switch can
bypass the IOMMU and DMA directly to other devices below the switch, so
all the downstream devices must be in the same IOMMU group as the switch

The existing VFIO framework allows the portdrv driver to be bound to the
bridge while its downstream devices are assigned to user space. The
pci_dma_configure() marks the IOMMU group as containing only devices
with kernel drivers that manage DMA. Avoid this default behavior for the
portdrv driver in order for compatibility with the current VFIO usage.

We achieve this by setting ".driver_managed_dma = true" in pci_driver
structure. It is safe because the portdrv driver meets below criteria:

- This driver doesn't use DMA, as you can't find any related calls like
pci_set_master() or any kernel DMA API (dma_map_*() and etc.).
- It doesn't use MMIO as you can't find ioremap() or similar calls. It's
tolerant to userspace possibly also touching the same MMIO registers
via P2P DMA access.
