Note that we end up having to do the same, because of iommu_unmap()
while DRM driver is powered off.. it might be cleaner if it was all
self contained in the iommu driver, but that would make it so other
drivers couldn't call iommu_unmap() from an irq handler, which is
apparently something that some of them want to do..

So I'm happy with the pm_runtime_get/put_suppliers() approach as a
reasonable compromise.

(Perhaps specifically, attach/detach this could move inside the iommu
driver, but we still need to get/put_suppliers() for unmap(), so meh)
