The PCIe video card does not cause the smmu faults. These still manifest
when the card is removed (and with same IOVA).

I guess there could be, but why would a problem that bisects down to
a change in the fsl-mc-bus initialization configuration alter the
behaviour of the PCIe graphics driver?

See
https://gist.github.com/daniel-thompson/07489561f14965fd1af7d5bd4340f54b

It contains three files, all gathered with the GPU removed:

* Logs from unmodified v5.15 with iommu.passthrough=1 set
(networking is good).
* Logs from v5.15 patched with the revert I shared earlier in
the thread (networking is good).
* Logs from v5.15 without iommu.passthough=1 set (many SMMU messages,
networking is broken).


Daniel.
