My only comment/question is whether you'd want to consider using
ERR_PTR() return values from domain_alloc().  It's an alloc functions,
so NULL == -ENOMEM is pretty standard, but we could at least have the
interface to the iommu driver return more info even if we continue to
mask that as NULL out to the IOMMU API users for now.  Thanks,
