The whole point of moving the iommu drivers to drivers/iommu was to
factor out common code. We are not where we want to be yet but the goal
is to move more code to the generic part.

For the group-code this means that the generic code should iterate over
all devices on a bus and build up group structures based on isolation
information provided by the arch specific code.
