I see.  So IA64 always uses the SWIOTLB when it doesn't have IOMMU then?

I'm a bit confused.  Is it enough to just set the DMA mask to 40-bit and
forget about all this checking?  I thought that wasn't enough.  A tx
packet can be anywhere in 64-bit memory.  When it gets to the driver,
pci_map will not do any translation even if DMA mask is set to 40-bit if
it doesn't have IOMMU.  Is that right?
