Yes, the structs also represent the differences in the remapping
hardware between Intel and AMD very well. On Intel there is one
remapping table per hardware IOMMU so it is important to get from a
given irq to the IOMMU and its remapping table to find the IRTE.

On AMD hardware there is a remapping table per device. So the
coresponding device id is stored in the struct to find the right
remapping table.
