The iommu_capable() is a generic IOMMU interface to query IOMMU
capabilities. It takes @bus and @cap as input, and calls the callback
of vendor iommu. If the vendor iommu driver supports the specific
capability, it returns true. Otherwise, it returns false.

bool iommu_capable(struct bus_type *bus, enum iommu_cap cap)
{
if (!bus->iommu_ops || !bus->iommu_ops->capable)
return false;

return bus->iommu_ops->capable(cap);
}
EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(iommu_capable);

In the vendor iommu's callback, it checks the capability and returns a
value according to its capability, just as showed above.

Best regards,
baolu
