There are other Marvell controllers that do DMA requests from the wrong 
PCI function ID and cause IOMMU issues, so it seems like testing on such 
systems (or just validating the DMA transactions done by the controller 
by some other means) isn't something that Marvell likes to do. 
Presumably reading from address 0 is normally fine without an IOMMU, so 
this problem wouldn't be noticed otherwise.
