[PATCH v6 7/7] iommu/dma: Add bootup option "iommu.non_strict"




From: Zhen Lei <thunder.leizhen@xxxxxxxxxx>

Add a bootup option to make the system manager can choose which mode to
be used. The default mode is strict.

Signed-off-by: Zhen Lei <thunder.leizhen@xxxxxxxxxx>
[rm: make it a generic iommu-dma feature]
