Well, as before I'd prefer to make the code match the commit message -
if I really need to spell it out, see below - since I can't imagine that
we should ever have need to identify a set of iommu_domain_ops in
isolation, therefore I think it's considerably clearer to use the
iommu_domain itself. However, either way we really don't need this yet,
so we may as well just go ahead and remove the redundant test from VFIO
anyway, and I can add some form of this patch to my dev branch for now.
