Right, I'm just not sure how resilient drivers are expected to be to force
unbinding like this. You can break lots of stuff with root...

I'm not sure what you mean about iommu_device_register() (we call that
already), but I guess we can keep the '.suppress_bind_attrs = true' if
necessary. I'll have a play on my laptop and see how well that works if
you start unbinding stuff.
