Nothing prevent this. Just I didn't test. mtk_iommu_v1.c only is used
in mt2701 and there is no VFIO scenario. I'm not sure if it supports
VFIO. (mtk_iommu.c support VFIO.)

The iommu flow in this file always is a bit odd as we need share iommu
domain in ARM32. As I tested before in the above link, "The iommu
framework will create a iommu domain for each a device.", therefore we
have to *workaround* in this file.

And this was expected to be fixed by:

sorry, I don't know its current status.

Thanks.
