Are there any limitations on IOVA address space for the devices or can
be really any system physical address mapped starting from 0 to 2^64?

This bothers me, as it is not compatible with the IOMMU-API. I looked a
little bit into how the mappings are created, and it seems there is a
per-device dma_table.

Is there any reason a dma_table can't be per IOMMU domain and assigned
to multiple devices at the same time?

Otherwise the code looks quite simple and straight forward.
