[PATCH v14 03/10] iommu: Separate IOMMU_DEV_FEAT_IOPF from IOMMU_DEV_FEAT_SVA

Some devices manage I/O Page Faults (IOPF) themselves instead of relying
on PCIe PRI or Arm SMMU stall. Allow their drivers to enable SVA without
mandating IOMMU-managed IOPF. The other device drivers now need to first
enable IOMMU_DEV_FEAT_IOPF before enabling IOMMU_DEV_FEAT_SVA. Enabling
IOMMU_DEV_FEAT_IOPF on its own doesn't have any effect visible to the
device driver, it is used in combination with other features.
