[PATCH] CHROMIUM: iommu: rockchip: Make sure that page table state is coherent

Even though the code uses the dt_lock spin lock to serialize mapping
operation from different threads, it does not protect from IOMMU
accesses that might be already taking place and thus altering state
of the IOTLB. This means that current mapping code which first zaps
the page table and only then updates it with new mapping which is
prone to mentioned race.

In addition, current code assumes that mappings are always > 4 MiB
(which translates to 1024 PTEs) and so they would always occupy
entire page tables. This is not true for mappings created by V4L2
Videobuf2 DMA contig allocator.

This patch changes the mapping code to always zap the page table
after it is updated, which avoids the aforementioned race and also
zap the last page of the mapping to make sure that stale data is
not cached from an already existing mapping.
