I see your point. I’m not confident that using the proposed door to set a
groups default domain has the desired behaviour. As discussed before the
default domain type will be set based on the desired type for only the
first device attached to a group. I think to change the default domain
type you would need a slightly different door that wasn’t conditioned on

For situations where individual devices require an identity domain because
of quirks then maybe calling is_identity_map per device in
iommu_group_get_for_dev is a better solution than the one I proposed.
