I tracked the problem down from mlx5_core's alloc_cmd_page() via
dma_alloc_coherent(), ops->alloc, iommu_dma_alloc_remap(), and
__iommu_dma_alloc_noncontiguous() to a failed iommu_dma_alloc_iova().
The allocation here is for 4K so nothing crazy.

On second look I also noticed:

nvme 2007:00:00.0: Using 42-bit DMA addresses

for the NVMe that is working. The problem here seems to be that we set
iommu_dma_forcedac = true in s390_iommu_probe_finalize() because we
have currently have a reserved region over the first 4 GiB anyway so
will always use IOVAs larger than that. That however is too late since
iommu_dma_set_pci_32bit_workaround() is already checked in
__iommu_probe_device() which is called just before ops-
>probe_finalize(). So I moved setting iommu_dma_forcedac = true to
zpci_init_iommu() and that gets rid of the notice for the NVMe but I
still get a failure of iommu_dma_alloc_iova() in
__iommu_dma_alloc_noncontiguous(). So I'll keep digging.
