That's an idealized view of the API, the actual semantics aren't as
simple. For IOMMU drivers that implement IOMMU_DOMAIN_DMA in their
domain_alloc operation (Arm SMMU, AMD IOMMU, ...), attach_dev attaches
an unmanaged domain, detach_dev reattaches the default DMA domain, and
the detach_dev IOMMU op is not called. We can't change that now, so it's
difficult to add more functionality to attach_dev and detach_dev.

Thanks,
Jean
