It is done in IOMMU driver internally.
IOMMU consumer driver(IOMMU client device driver?) sees IOMMU domain
but IOMMU itself. How to handle IOMMUs of the client device is just
in charge of IOMMU driver according to the hardwired bus topology.
If a master and IOMMU device should be 1:1 relationship as you contend,
the master device driver should be responsible for express the bus
topology in its business logic. I think it is not good as I told earlier.
IOMMU group is different from the grouping System MMUs in Exynos IOMMU driver.
IOMMU group is invented to group several IOMMUs on different bus with different
masters to assign the same IOMMU domain.
It is useful for user level virtualization but for expressing bus topology.
Exynos IOMMU driver just groups System MMUs that have the same master device.
Even though Exynos IOMMU driver implements IOMMU group which is already
implemented by 20/31 patch, such looping is still required.
However, I will consider other elegant way of interation of multiple System MMUs.
