No, not every combination. But if possible please compile-test each
changed file with a .config that pulls that source file in. Lots of
drivers can be enabled just with COMPILE_TEST on x86 or be catched with
a generic ARM/ARM64 config which enables all IOMMU drivers. PAMU is a
bit more difficult as it requires a PPC-32 bit config, but that is the

A full kernel build is usually also not necessary, often a 'make
drivers/iommu/' with a given config is enough.

That is also how I compile-test the IOMMU tree before I push changes
out. There are per-arch configurations which select all IOMMU drivers on
that arch. Only for X86 I do the full allnoconfig, defconfig,
allmodconfig and allyesconfig cycle (each for 32 and 64 bit).

That certainly does not catch everything, but a lot of compile issues can be
found that way. And for patch-sets only touching, for example, VT-d it
is still enough to only compile-test on x86. A patch-set touching that
much drivers is rather the exception.
