Sure, I'd go for:

Fixes: d87beb749281 ("iommu/of: Handle PCI aliases properly")

The check itself originally dates back to b996444cf35e ("iommu/of:
Handle iommu-map property for PCI") but it's really not worth
backporting past the above refactoring - it's only with da4b02750a9f
("iommu/of: Fix of_iommu_configure() for disabled IOMMUs") in 4.14-rc1
that it started to have noticeable ill effects.
