Joerg, is your arm/rockchip branch [0] considered stable?

[0] https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/joro/iommu.git/log/?h=arm/rockchip

While testing this I noticed a quite big kconfig warning
(on both 3.18-rc1 and 3.18-rc6):

drivers/video/fbdev/Kconfig:5:error: recursive dependency detected!
drivers/video/fbdev/Kconfig:5:  symbol FB is selected by DRM_KMS_FB_HELPER
drivers/gpu/drm/Kconfig:34:     symbol DRM_KMS_FB_HELPER is selected by DRM_ROCKCHIP
drivers/gpu/drm/rockchip/Kconfig:1:     symbol DRM_ROCKCHIP depends on ARM_DMA_USE_IOMMU
arch/arm/Kconfig:95:    symbol ARM_DMA_USE_IOMMU is selected by VIDEO_OMAP3
drivers/media/platform/Kconfig:96:      symbol VIDEO_OMAP3 depends on VIDEO_V4L2
drivers/media/v4l2-core/Kconfig:6:      symbol VIDEO_V4L2 depends on I2C
drivers/i2c/Kconfig:7:  symbol I2C is selected by FB_DDC
drivers/video/fbdev/Kconfig:59: symbol FB_DDC is selected by FB_CYBER2000_DDC
drivers/video/fbdev/Kconfig:374:        symbol FB_CYBER2000_DDC depends on FB_CYBER2000
drivers/video/fbdev/Kconfig:362:        symbol FB_CYBER2000 depends on FB

It looks like the VIDEO_OMAP3 is selecting ARM_DMA_USE_IOMMU and
OMAP_IOMMU instead of depending on it.

I'm not sure which driver should change but looking at the exynos drm
driver it is also depends on the iommu parts instead of selecting them
[like the rockchip drm currently does]
