That's unlikely to be for 4.2 - it's going to have a reasonable risk
of regressions, and functionality like that I don't think is nice to
rush into a feature frozen tree, the more that it provides a
workaround for the combination of questionable design and an
improper kernel side fix.
Have you at all considered getting this fixed on the kernel side?
As I don't have direct access to any AMD IOMMU capable
system - can one, other than by enumerating the respective
PCI IDs or reading ACPI tables, reasonably easily identify the
devices in question (e.g. via vendor/class/sub-class or some
such)? That might permit skipping those in the offending kernel
