I'd guess that drm/msm is not detaching all of it's UNMANAGED domains
in shutdown. Although *presumably* the device_link stuff would
prevent the SMMU from shutting down while gpu/display is still active?
If not I think we have bigger problems.

I hadn't really noticed the error msgs before, not sure if that is
just because the screen is off by the time they happen or if they are
a new warning..
