Yes, but that assumes that args->np points to the memory controller's
device tree node. It's obviously a mistake to do this, but I don't think
anyone will prevent you from doing this:

iommus = <&{/chosen} 0>;

In that case, since no platform device is created for the /chosen node,
iommu_pdev will end up being NULL and platform_get_drvdata() will crash.

That said, I'm fine with not adding a check for that. If anyone really
does end up messing this up they deserve the crash.

I'm still a bit undecided about the mc->smmu check because I haven't
convinced myself yet that it can't happen.
