Do you mean we can invalidate IOTLB with this iommu_commit()?
We need to invalidate IOTLB without updating page table for some
optimized solutions.

If a device in one domain is moved to other domain, IOTLB of the
device must be invalidated
because it contains translation information of the previous domain.
