I'm going to need exactly the same hook fro Calgary, as well Intel for
VT-d, and AMD for their upcoming IOMMU, etc. How about we do

struct iommu_ops {
struct dma_ops {
...
}
void (*shutdown)(void);
}

And then pci_iommu_shutdown() becomes

if (iommu_ops->shutdown)
iommu_ops->shutdown();

?

Cheers,
Muli
