    The point is that on the higher level device drivers, we want to
    hide the presence of CMA and/or IOMMU behind the dma mapping API,
    but the device drivers do need to know about the bank properties.

    If we want to solve the problem of allocating per-bank memory inside
    of CMA, we also need to solve it inside of the IOMMU code, using
    the same device driver interface.
