[PATCH 02/10] xen/swiotlb: With more than 4GB on 64-bit, disable the native SWIOTLB.

From: Konrad Rzeszutek Wilk
Date: Mon Sep 10 2012 - 15:59:40 EST

If a PV guest is booted the native SWIOTLB should not be
turned on. It does not help us (we don't have any PCI devices)
and it eats 64MB of good memory. In the case of PV guests
with PCI devices we need the Xen-SWIOTLB one.
