Sure I'll check that.

Well these patches are just intended to fix the platform data interface
between core ARM code and iommu. At this point I really don't want to
get involved in the iommu framework.

What you are asking should be coordinated with Joerg and Ohad. Ideally
the iommu framework would provide the API to the drivers to use, and there
would not be any need to have include/linux/omap-iommu.h.

If you ask me, I would just rip out the code that's not following the
iommu API immediately and have it resubmitted in a sane way :)

I just fixed up things to follow what's being done with the iommu
framework currently. Probably keeping only omap-iommu.h available is
the best way to go until the iommu framework provides the interfaces,
but again that's up to Joerg and Ohad.

Yes since they are exported, I just moved them. Again, this is something
that should be handled eventually via the iommu framework using runtime PM
and not be exported at all. Again, I would just rip out that code
if you ask me and replace it with comments until fixed.
