Which is fine and which is actually already done by one of the patches
in this series, not for map/unmap, but probe, add_device,
remove_device. Having parts of the API doing it inside the callback
and other parts outside sounds at least inconsistent.

Sorry, maybe I wasn't clear. My last message was supposed to show that
it's not contradictory at all, because "other drivers trying to unmap
from irq ctx" would already have called pm_runtime_get_*() earlier
from a non-irq ctx, which would have also done the same on all the
linked suppliers, including the IOMMU. The ultimate result would be
that the map/unmap() of the IOMMU driver calling pm_runtime_get_sync()
would do nothing besides incrementing the reference count.

I guess I should have read those. Let me do that now.
