This doesn't break any functionality. It takes effect only if iommu
hardware supports finer granular translation and advertises it through
the API.

Let's consider it from the API point of view.

We have iommu_a(de)ttach_device() APIs to attach or detach a domain
to/from a device. We should avoid applying a limitation of "these are
only for single domain case, for multiple domains, use another API".
