Do we have any idea how we are going to do this?

It's extra complicated if you consider that on some systems on some of
the devices are behind an IOMMU :-/

I wonder if we can enumerate which devices have an IOMMU at boot time
and force a ludicrous dma mask (such as 0) if one isn't present in order
to force us to always take the exchange_and_pin path?
