It looks like the fault (DMAR) and event (AMD) interrupts can be
disabled in the IOMMU. That might help to bridge the gap until the PCI
bus is scanned in full glory and the devices can be shut up for real.
If we make this conditional for a crash dump kernel that might do the
Lot's of _might_ there :)
