Putting aside the coding style violations (figure braces on their own
lines, no hard tabs), you tie this to the wrong thing: You need
interrupt remapping to be enabled, whereas iommu_enable may
only mean DMA remapping. And I'm afraid you'd run into an
ordering problem (iommu_intremap getting set to its final value
vs. the code above being run) if you tried to correct this.
