The file * being NULL means the device is only owned by the kernel
driver. Perhaps we can check this pointer in iommu_attach_device() to
avoid using it for user domain attachment.

The existing iommu_attach_device() allows only for singleton group. As
we have added group ownership attribute, we can enforce this interface
only for kernel domain usage.

Okay! Thank you!
