Putting the put_device() here is wrong, though. You need to make sure
you keep a reference to it as long as you keep accessing the data that
is owned by it.

Like I said earlier, this is a bit weird in this case because we're
self-referencing, so iommu_pdev->dev is going to stay around as long as
the SMMU is. However, it might be worth to properly track the lifetime
anyway just so that the code can serve as a good example of how to do
things.

If you decide to go for the shortcut and not track this reference
properly, then at least you need to add a comment as to why it is safe
to do in this case. This ensures that readers are away of the
circumstances and don't copy this bad code into a context where the
circumstances are different.
