On SMMUv3 the minimum alignment for base_ptr is 64 bytes, so a guest
under a vSMMU might pass a pointer that's not aligned on 4k.

Maybe this information could be part of the data passed to userspace
about IOMMU table formats and features? They're not part of this series,
but I think we wanted to communicate IOMMU-specific features via sysfs.

Thanks,
