Yes, that is correct; it can only find problems in non-architecture
code, and on the downside produces false positives and thus build errors
like this one.

Which makes the fix a bit philosophical. Rename iommu_pool_hash in
iommu-common, or drop DEBUG_FORCE_WEAK_PER_CPU. I would rename
iommu_pool_hash, but that is just me. Ultimately, I don't really
care one way or another, as long as the problem gets fixed.
