Hi Will,

You are right, only other IOMMU drivers will add a device to a group.
There was a discussion about this when I posted a similar patch for
the Exynos System MMU driver, see
http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/linux-arm-kernel/2013-July/185675.html

The idea is to check in the case of add_device() being called multiple
times, which is not the case most of the time, but still a sane
safeguard.
