[PATCH kernel] vfio: Only check for bus IOMMU when NOIOMMU is selected

Recent change 03a76b60 "vfio: Include No-IOMMU mode" disabled VFIO
on systems which do not implement iommu_ops for the PCI bus even though
there is an VFIO IOMMU driver for it such as SPAPR TCE driver for
PPC64/powernv platform.

This moves iommu_present() call under #ifdef CONFIG_VFIO_NOIOMMU as
it is done in the rest of the file to re-enable VFIO on powernv.
