Subject: [PATCH v3 0/8]  Fix breakage caused by the NTB multi-port patchset


I'm resending this because I've recently found out that the change we
made to use the NTB struct device in DMA allocations is wrong and
needs to be reverted. Turns out that, when running with an IOMMU,
dma_alloc_coherent() will always fail if you pass it the NTB struct
device. This is because the device has not been assigned an IOMMU
group and the Intel IOMMU at least expect the devices to be on the PCI
bus and be able to find a proper bus-dev-fn number through a struct
pci device. Therefore, we must revert the change and I've changed
patch 2 to do this and remove the no longer necessary DMA mask

I'm not sure if we can get past the impass in getting this series merged:
I still maintain every patch in this series is necessary to fix a
regression and there's no way to add port numbers to switchtec in the
crosslink configuration so it can't be fixed in the other way that was



Changes since v2:
- Rebased on v5.0-rc1
- Modify Patch 2 to revert back to using the PCI struct device
  instead of the NTB struct device in DMA calls
- Collected Allen's Acks
- Collected Alexander's Tested-By

Changes since v1:
- Rebased onto ntb-next (there was a minor conflict in a recent change
  to the intel driver)
- Collected Dave's Ack
