I think the code needs enhancement. Although one group per container
and one device per group is the most typical and desired case, but
the code here loops domains, groups, devices. It should be able to
unwind prior bind when the loop failed for a device. So I plan to do
below change for bind path.

list_for_each_entry(domain, &iommu->domain_list, next) {
list_for_each_entry(group, &domain->group_list, next) {
/*
* if bind failed on a certain device, should unbind prior successful
* bind iommu_group_for_each_dev() should be modified to take two
* callbacks, one for forward loop and one for reverse loop when failure
* happened. "return_upon_failure" indicates whether return upon failure
* during forward loop or not. If yes, iommu_group_for_each_dev() should
* unwind the prior bind in this iommu group before return.
*/
ret = iommu_group_for_each_dev(iommu_group, bind_gpasid_fn,
unbind_gpasid_fn, data, return_upon_failure);
if (ret)
break;
}
if (ret) {
/* unwind bindings with prior groups */
list_for_each_entry_continue_reverse(group,
&domain->group_list, next) {
iommu_group_for_each_dev(iommu_group, unbind_gpasid_fn,
NULL, data, ignore_intermediate_failure);
}
break;
}
}

if (ret) {
/* unwind bindings with prior domains */
list_for_each_entry_continue_reverse(domain, &iommu->domain_list, next) {
iommu_group_for_each_dev(iommu_group, unbind_gpasid_fn,
NULL, data, ignore_intermediate_failure);
}
}
}

return ret;
