We have #iommu-cells as '1' i.e. iommu will have one stream ID configured for a device.
Once USB and other devices start to use IOMMU we will also need this iommu-cells.

When #iommu-cells is defined as '1' and we have 'iommus=<&smmu>' compilation
reports warning about the mismatch.
In fsl-mc bus case we do not have any stream id associated with the bus.

As suggested by Robin, we can simply use the iommu-map property.

We can use the iommu-map property which is already documented.

There is no such device currently with which fsl-mc bus uses more than one iommu.
Infact, our current systems have only single IOMMU :).

Even in future if such devices are there then we can use iommu-map to specify
more than one iommu with separate requester ID's (RID's).

Thank you for review...
