If the idea is to share some memory across multiple devices, I guess
you can achieve the same by calling the map function provided by iommu
module and sharing the mapped address to the 10's or 100's of devices
to access the buffers. You would only need a dedicated virtual pool
per IOMMU device to manage its virtual memory allocations.
