umm, that is kindof the inverse of the problem.. the problem is
things like gpu driver (and v4l2 drivers that import dma-buf's,
afaict).. they will potentially call iommu->unmap() when device is not
active (due to userspace or things beyond the control of the driver)..
so *they* would want iommu to do pm get/put calls. But other drivers
trying to unmap from irq ctx would not. Which is the contradictory
requirement that lead to the idea of iommu user powering up iommu for

There has already been some discussion about this on various earlier
permutations of this patchset. I think we have exhausted all other
