From: Jérôme Glisse <jglisse at redhat.com>

Some device like GPU do things differently if swiotlb is in use. We
use to rely on swiotlb_nr_tbl() to know if swiotlb was enabled or not
but this is unreliable. Patch add a simple helpers to check if any of
the dma_ops associated with a device points to the swiotlb functions,
making swiotlb check reliable for a device.
