Thanks for tracking this down. However, I don't think this is an
appropriate fix for v4.12 because it requires an update to the DTB in
order to preserve functionality, which means we've broken DT ABI. The
proper fix I think needs to be to make usage of the IOMMU completely
optional in the host1x driver.

So I think what happens without this DT change is that the call to
iommu_attach_device() fails and we have no way to recover from that. I
think what we need to do is to free the domain in that case and make
sure we can continue without one. It's probably best to add an error
message, or maybe a warning to make sure people are aware.

Do you have the time to address this? If not, perhaps Mikko can take a
