So force all virtio devices to use DMA API, except when
VIRTIO_F_IOMMU_PLATFORM is not enabled?

Any help detailing the idea, will enable us fix this issue once for all.

Will something like below work? It removes the prior hacks, and
always uses DMA API; except when VIRTIO_F_IOMMU_PLATFORM is not enabled.
