Fine for me.

However I I would suggest to rename the original iommu_sva_invalidate
into something that is SVA unrelated. iommu_tlb_invalidate is not OK as
this API also is used to invalidate context caches - which are not
iotlbs -. What about iommu_cache_invalidate?

At least we must clarify that this API can be used for something else
than SVA enablement.
