Yeah, I don't see any problem with adding a patch to do that.
impl_init() does need to happen before generic probe starts touching any
registers, but it wouldn't have any business overriding the platform
resources or anything that would affect the ioremap itself. Plus it's
reasonable that some theoretical future impl_init() might want to check
registers for, say, a particular hardware revision, so having
smmmu->base mapped and valid at that point would be no bad thing.
