I would like to move the ARM SMMU driver over to this for 3.18, if possible.
One use-case there is the ability to describe groups of masters behind a
multi-master IOMMU but which must be part of the same domain (i.e. an
iommu_group). This is useful for presenting devices to a guest with a
virtual SMMU, where the physical devices share a stage-2 context.

With your binding, does this simply mean determining the set of master IDs
in the group, then describing the complete set for each master?
