THat is odd, why even offer this feature then if it is a major issue?
UACCE_DEV_NOIOMMU maybe confusing here.

In this mode, app use ioctl to get dma_handle from dma_alloc_coherent.
That's odd, why not use the other default apis to do that?

It does not matter iommu is enabled or not.
In case iommu is disabled, it maybe dangerous to kernel, so we added warning here, is it required?
You should use the other documentated apis for this, don't create your
I am sorry, not understand here.
Do you mean there is a standard ioctl or standard api in user space, it can get dma_handle from dma_alloc_coherent from kernel?
