It seems like I never got back to you on this. The reason here is that
for Tegra the IOMMU is part of a larger IP block. The IP block is
primarily a memory controller with a bunch of configuration knobs for
arbitration, prioritization and whatnot. A smaller part of the device
does the IOMMU translation. Therefore the IOMMU implementation would
be part of a larger driver, and having this dummy would reduce the
amount of #ifdefs required.

bus_set_iommu() is also the only function in include/linux/iommu.h that
doesn't have a dummy, so it seemed like a natural thing to do.

That said, I can work around this being absent for !IOMMU_API.
