Which hardware does this node represent?

If this is functionality provided by another block of hardware (i.e. the
DSPs themselves), it would be better to have nodes for them.

Why is this in a reg?

To be, a phandle to the relevant DSP would seem better.

In what sense?

Does this mean Secure / Non-secure in the TrustZone sense?

Presumably the default is 1, rather than 'One'.

What is a session? How do there share a context bank?

These iommus should be associated with the device (i.e. the DSP itself).

Thanks,
Mark.
