DPDK 17.11 introduced the IOMMU feature which caused additional
DPDK memory requirement per vhostuser device as part of
iotlb_init(). Today this is done unconditionally (from DPDK
17.11 onwards) i.e. irrespective of IOMMU feature being
enabled on the vhostuser device, iotlb is initialized. This
breaks the backward compatibility for applications like OVS
due to increase in the DPDK memory footprint and causes upgrade
failures.

This patch is to do iotlb_init only if IOMMU feature is
enabled on device.

I guess, "Fixes" line should be here?

vhost_user_iotlb_init() is called on the virtqueue allocation
stage, most likely while processing VHOST_USER_SET_VRING_CALL.
QEMU usually sends VHOST_USER_SET_FEATURES after the
VHOST_USER_SET_VRING_CALL. This means that 'dev->features' are
not yet initialized here.

Have you tested that IOMMU feature works with this patch applied?

Hi Ilya,
Thanks for your comments. I haven't tested with IOMMU enabled. I covered more of memory utilization by testing OVS with DPDK. I will test out by enabling IOMMU and send the updated patch.

Regards,
Nitin
