Aha, I see what you mean now -- the issue is that attaching to an IOMMU
domain no longer swizzles the DMA ops. Furthermore, we also need to take
into account the coherency of the device, which we didn't do before (and
assumedly "worked" because all of the users happened to be non-coherent).
Maybe we just need to add something like arm_iommu_swizzle_dma_ops, so
that direct users of the arm_iommu_* API can manage things manually?
