(For some reason the "Date:" header of this message is 16 hours into the
future. Ie, it claims to be for (UTC) 2015-01-26, 19.30 but actually was
probably sent around (UTC) 2015-01-26, 03.30. This made this message
stick at the top of the mail folder it ended up in. And that was about
the only reason why I even scanned it.)

                                  configurable?

Ditto for the summary.

                  required one will run into an error like:

or something similar.

So in order to solve that and use 1M this new option needs to be set at
512?

No "prompt", so to change this value one needs to edit the .config
manually. Is that intended?

According to include/linux/swiotlb.h this needs to be a power of 2.
Shouldn't that be explained here too? Ditto the 2K unit size. And should
a range of useful values be specified?

(These are not rhetorical questions: I know nothing about all this. This
also means I might just not be part of the intended audience for this
option.)

The maximum of SW-IOMMU is limited to 2^11*128 = 256K.
While in different platform and different requirements this seems improper.
So modify the IO_TLB_SEGSIZE to configtable is make sense.
Example:
If 1M bytes are requied. There has an error like.
[ 33.293120] DMA: Out of SW-IOMMU space for 1048576 bytes at device gadget
