Do we need to update kernel-parameters.txt for iommu.strict?

maybe should add "DMA" to the name, and even "DEFAULT"

This is a bit unclear, as there is no context. I think that you need to 
say something like, "Support lazy mode, where for every IOMMU DMA unmap 
operation, the flush operation of IOTLB and the free operation of IOVA 
are deferred. "

prone to going out-of-date
