As mentioned, 1 ms is enough for VT-d IOTLB/Context/IEC invalidation, so we are 
no need to increasing the value of timeout or introduce a boot-time changed 
What about a constant (e.g. a macro), 1 ms, for VT-d IOTLB/Context/IEC 
invalidation timeout.

For Device-TLB invalidation, we can introduce 'vtd_qi_device_timeout', which is 
boot-time changed, and 1 ms by default.
