Ah OK. Then maybe we should move the definitions for TLB_LOOP_TIMEOUT
and TLB_SPIN_COUNT into the arm-smmu.h so that we can use them directly
in this file instead of redefining them. Then it maybe clear that these
are part of the main driver.

Ah yes of course that is what I was missing. I wondered what was going
on here. So I think we should add a nice comment in the above function
of why we are copying this and cannot simply store the pointer.
