I am not sure what you mean by single-instance. Is it that currently the
API only supports one type of iommu_ops per bus? That should be fine as
long as there is only one type of IOMMU on the bus.

Besides that, it is a feature of the IOMMU-API to hide the details about
all the hardware IOMMUs in the system from its users.
