SubjectRe: [RFC 1/5] ARM: dev_archdata: add private iommu extension

x86 probably does this because two different implementations needs to
plug their private data there: intel-iommu plugs there a 'struct
device_domain_info *' and amd_iommu uses it with a 'struct
iommu_dev_data *'.

On ARM we'd eventually end up with even a bigger variety, and I guess
that even if we'd use a type-safe member here, it would itself end up
having 'void *'.

If it looks reasonable to you, can I please have your Ack ?

Russell, can you please take a look too and ack/nack ?
