You just need a flag to specify if the driver manages DMA ownership
itself, or if it requires the driver core to setup kernel ownership



There is a bool 'suprress_bind_attrs' already so it could be done like

bool suppress_bind_attrs:1;

/* If set the driver must call iommu_XX as the first action in probe() */
bool suppress_dma_owner:1;

Which is pretty low cost.
