Hello Stefano and Greg,

Sorry for the late answer. I wrote a simple patch which depend on patch #1.
Let me know if it's the right direction.

Regards,

    ARM: platform_device: dev_archdata: Add xen specific boolean
    
    Until now, every DMA-capable devices are using specific Xen DMA ops when Linux
    is running as DOM0. These DMA ops call swiotlb-xen to bounce buffer.
    
    With the support of IOMMU drivers in Xen, every device protected by IOMMU
    must not use swiotlb DMA ops.
    
    This patch introduces a boolean in dev_archdata to indicate if the device
    can safely use its own DMA ops or swiotlb ops.

I have no context here, care to start the patch series over?

thanks,
