"/sys/kernel/iommu_groups/<grp_id>/type" file could be read to find out the
default domain type of an iommu group. The default domain of an iommu group
doesn't change after booting and hence could be read directly. But,
after addding support to dynamically change iommu group default domain, the
above assumption no longer stays valid.

iommu group default domain type could be changed at any time by writing to
"/sys/kernel/iommu_groups/<grp_id>/type". So, take group mutex before
reading iommu group default domain type so that the user wouldn't see stale
values or iommu_group_show_type() doesn't try to derefernce stale pointers.
