[PATCH] drm/amdgpu: set default noretry=1 to fix kfd SVM issues for raven

Doesn't this break IOMMUv2? Applications that run using IOMMUv2 for
system memory access depend on correct retry handling in the SQ.
Therefore noretry must be 0 on Raven.
I believe the reason that SVM has trouble with retry enabled is, that
IOMMUv2 is catching the page faults, so the driver never gets to handle
the page fault interrupts. That breaks page-fault based migration in the
SVM code. I think the better solution is to disable SVM on APUs where
IOMMUv2 is enabled.
Alternatively, we could give up on IOMMUv2 entirely and always rely on
SVM to provide that functionality. But that requires more changes in the
